Poke Kraut

Poke Kraut

A kraut with a kick! Delicious and a good way to use up radishes. 

Ingredients

1 medium red cabbage

1 medium hispi cabbage

4 carrots

6 radishes 

1 large thumb fresh ginger

20grams seaweed

2 green chilli

2 tablespoons sea salt

Method

1: Shred the two cabbages and ginger in a food processor or grate by hand on largest side of grater. 

2: Thinly slice the carrots and radish or slice using the thinnest setting on a food processer. 

3: Remove seeds from the chlili's and chop into thin slices. 

4: Add the cabbage, radish, ginger and carrots to a bowl with the salt and massage vigorously with your hands until it becomes wet and sitting in liquid. Don't be shy now, give it some welly. 

5: Stuff the ingredients including the chilli and seaweed firmly into a steralised kilner jar - or normal jars with metal lids - and ensure it's covered in it's own liquid. 

6: Hold the ingredients down under the juice with either a fermentation stone if you're fancy or use a cabbage leaf pressed down on top to seal the contents. Seal the lid or cover loosely if you don't want to 'burp' it every day. 

7: If you sealed your ferment burp it every day by opening the lid to release gases. Do this in a sink incase you get any spurts or splatters. If you leave it for a few days without 'burping' it's more likely to do this. Press the cabbage leaf firmly down to ensure none of your ferment is not covered by the liquid. 

8: After a week your ferment should be ready. Leave longer as desired. Disgard the covering cabbage leaf. Seal and store in fridge.
