Fermented Vegetables: Spirulina Sauerkraut.
One of our more popular Ferments combines Sauerkraut and a super food algae Spirulina.
And this is a super yummy and super healthy combination.
Combining sea vegetables or algae with Krauts has been quite trendy in the recent years.
We also wanted to give it a try, but we chose Spirulina for that task.
So what is Spirulina? It's a blue-green algae, and it is a food supplement or dietary supplement. Spirulina dates back to at least 16th century, when the Aztecs were harvesting it from Lake Texoco, in Mexico.
There's a lot of information about the health benefits of Spirulina, as well as about its nutritional content. Here's just one compilation from spirulinanb.com
To find out more, just google "Spirulina health benefits".
But what is more important for us is that Spirulina becomes more bio-available, when it's fermented. And that's the reason why we mix it with Sauerkraut, and why we ferment it.
As a ferment, it is surprisingly easy to make, and here are the main ingredients for it:
So, the white cabbage, carrots, and Spirulina powder.
Now, let's take a look how we make it.
Here are the Sauerkraut's ingredients again.
First, we start with cabbage.
And then the carrots.
Next, comes the unrefined sea salt and our stones.
Once the juices come out, we add pureed garlic and onions. If necessary, we add some water, and we adjust the salt amount.
Then, it's time for our star ingredient.
And voila! Time for the Fermentation crocks.
Finally, when the time is right, we transfer the Spirulina Kraut into the retail jars.
Once the jars are closed and cleaned up, they go into the fridge.
Once they are there, you can pick one or two to take home.
You can also enjoy Spirulina Kraut as a part of our Ferment Dégustation plate, as seen on the pic below.
It's that easy!
Spirulina Sauerkraut is available in two different sizes: 410 gr and 175 gr.
