Fermented Vegetables: Red Cabbage.
Red Cabbage (or Rotkohl in German) is another one of our staples, that we've been making from the very beginning.
And that's because we also make Kombucha. And when you make Kombucha, you will always end up with Kombucha Vinegar. And when you have too much Kombucha Vinegar, you should get creative with it.
And, we did!
Our Pickled/Fermented Red Cabbage is pretty simple.
Below you can see almost all the ingredients.
First, we clean and cut the cabbage. Next, we use a food processor to slice it really thin.
Next, we add in the unrefined Atlantic sea salt.
And, now it's time for our Kombucha vinegar, and filtered water.
Next, it's time for pureed onions and garlic.
A bit of mixing, and pounding!
Here's some of that action from our YouTube channel:
When the juices come out, it's time to load our fermenters:
After the lids go on top, it will take about 3 months for our cabbage to be ready.
Here, two processes happen at the same time. The classic lacto-fermentation, as we have a salt brine, but also some pickling action thanks to the live Kombucha Vinegar.
And, when it's ready, it goes into our retail jars.
Our Pickled/Fermented Red Cabbage looks absolutely delicious, and it stays quite crispy for a long time.
Crispiness is preserved by the tannins present in Kombucha Vinegar. And those obviously come from the tea, and they are not present in any other from of vinegar.
Also Kombucha Vinegar is, apart from Apple Cider Vinegar, one of the very few "live" vinegars out there.
Here's a close up of the retail jar, and of the label:
Our Rotkohl is available in two different sizes: 410 gr and 175 gr.
Making a pickle/ferment out of red cabbage provides also a lot of health benefits.
