Superkraut is one of our oldest vegetable ferments. Right after the opening in May, 2015 a jar of our first Superkaut was made and in August that year we already served it as a side dish.
Why Superkraut? Because a simple Sauerkraut can be a bit boring, but a jazzed up version will give you more fermented veggies - hence more vitamins, organic acids & enzymes.
But all those goodies develop only after a proper & lengthy fermentation.
So we start with these four beautiful veggies:
Savoy cabbage, carrots, cauliflower and sweet peppers.
When all cut up, they get all mixed together and they are rubbed with unrefined sea salt.
Then heavy stones go on top of them and they stay covered overnight, so that the juices come out. Next come the pureed onions and garlic. After mixing the future Superkraut looks like this.
When it's all done, it is time for fermentation crocks.
A portion of it will also go into our special Fermentation Glass Jars. These serve the purpose of showcase pieces so that people can see how the fermentation process progresses.
As with the other veggie ferments, we let our Superkraut ferment for 2-3 months.
When finally that time comes, we label our retail jars and we transfer the Kraut into those jars.
Here's the final product:
After fermenting for longer time, Superkraut reaches its full potential. Now, it is loaded with bacteria, vitamins (especially C), beneficial enzymes, organic acids and more.
All those nutrients are now bio-available and the veggies are very easy on the stomach. it is as if they were pre-digested by the lactic acid bacteria.
When in original liquid, our Superkraut can stay over one year without getting spoiled. It only becomes more delicious!
So you can enjoy it either as a side dish
Or you can get creative & you can enjoy it mixed in a salad, like this one below, with Roasted Beets, Pistachios, Avocado & Brown Chickpeas:
Or any other way that you can think of!
