Simple Sauerkraut Recipe

Sauerkraut is way easier to make than most people think.  It takes about 30 minutes to prepare and has to sit for 3-7 days.  We prefer red cabbage, or a combo or red and green.  When we were on the road, we made sauerkraut twice a week.  It is amazing with Japanese Sweet potatoes! Enough of the pre-recipe chit chat, on to how to make sauerkraut! Prep: 30min Cook: 3-7 days Ingredients 1 large head of red or green cabbage 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon fennel 1 cup cranberries Instructions Cut the cabbage in half and remove 1-2 clean outer leaves.

Kombucha Recipe

This recipe makes about 14 cups of kombucha.  There are a number of different sweeteners you can use for this, we have played around with all sorts from cane sugar, to blueberry based sugar to coconut sugar.  They all kind of work, but our kombucha always turns out best with just regular ol' sugar.  We aim for the organic stuff, but if cost is an issue non-organic is alright. What makes kombucha so great is how cheap and easy it is to make.  If you buy it from the store, one liter of it can cost as much as $14.00!  When you make it at home it costs pennies. There are a few places to buy a SCOBY (mother).  You can buy it on amazon, you can...

Yogurt Recipe

This yogurt recipe makes 1 quart.  Like kombucha, yogurt is easy to make and very cheap.  You can get a yogurt starter kit from most health food stores, but we usually recommend just buying a quart or more of good quality organic yogurt and using that as your starter.  If you are luck enough, you may be able to get some yogurt from a friend who has been fermenting for a while.  For some reason, if you have had a culture going for a while it seems to work better. Prep: 15min Cook (ferment): 10-20 hrs Ingredients 1 quart whole milk 1/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt.  Organic is best. Instructions Have a 1 quart container, or several small ones, ready.  Make sure they have plastic lids. In a large, heavy-bottomed...
