Sauerkraut and Sourdough

If you’ve read my previous post on the topic, you’ll know that I am currently in the process of making my first batch of sauerkraut. It’s going pretty well so far, I ended up adding some red cabbage I had in the cupboard and I’m yet to have any exploding jars, mould or overly odd smells. I’m going to give it a few more days before tasting.

Next to the sauerkraut jar on my kitchen worktop is my sourdough starter. I love baking bread and I especially love the taste of sourdough. It has taken a few months of experimenting to get the consistency and level of yeasty-ness right and it is still a little bit unpredictable, but I love the taste it gives my bread. I also love not having to use those single use foil packets of yeast, which produce so much waste!

I hope the sauerkraut has worked, I’ll let you know when I have tasted it!
