This is maybe the closest thing to a seasonal sauerkraut I’ve come across. It’s also a great way to get the probiotic benefits with a bit of a spicy apple twist! If you’re looking for something a bit more exciting with which to invigorate your gut bacteria, or if you’re looking for a more flavorful kraut, then this spiced apple sauerkraut has your name on it!

  1. Pull 3 outer leaves off the head of cabbage and set aside. Shred the remaining cabbage in a food processor, mandolin or chop with a knife. Add it to a big bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the cabbage with sea salt. Mix and massage the sea salt into the cabbage for about 5 minutes.
  3. Set the cabbage aside and let it sit for 15-20 minutes so the sea salt has time to draw out the liquid and make the cabbage soft.
  4. Shred the apples using a food processor or cut them into thin strips.
  5. Add the shredded apples, ginger, cinnamon and cloves to the cabbage mixture.
  6. Mix and squeeze the cabbage mixture with your hands or a vegetable pounder until liquid comes out when squeezed.
  7. Pack the cabbage in the mason jar tightly with either your hand or a vegetable pounder. Push it all the way down until it submerges in its own juices (this is the brine).
  8. Repeat this until there is about 1½ inches of space from the top of the jar. Roll up the leaves and place them in the jar to push the cabbage under the brine.
  9. Screw on the jar loosely so gas can escape as fermentation takes place. Set on the counter for 5-7 days in a cool, shaded place. Place a plate under the mason jar in case it bubbles over and makes a mess.
  10. During fermentation the sauerkraut will bubble a little and become cloudy. If scum appears, remove it with a spoon.
  11. Remove the rolled up cabbage leaves and toss in the garbage before eating. Store in the fridge.

Note: Since cabbage heads vary in size, you may fill more than one jar or less. To get the salt just right, add a little and taste the cabbage mixture. Add enough until it tastes a little salty. You can find my 3 simple steps to make perfectly salted sauerkraut every time here.

Hi! I’m Danielle, fermented food lover and blogger. I’ve been making fermented foods for about four years. My adventures into fermented foods started with coconut water kefir and eventually I got into making fermented veggies such as sauerkraut and pickles.
