The cabbage you buy in a jar or from a tub in the market is fermented sauerkraut, which means that it has been sitting, weighted down, in its salty tub for quite some time. The flavour, once the ferment is complete, is slightly sour, which you can modify by adding orange or apple juice, juniper berries, etc.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
15 juniper berries
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 x 1.5kg jar of sauerkraut
or 1.5kg ready-made from a tub
2 fresh apples, cored and finely grated
1 litre apple juice
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, and fry the onion for about 10 minutes to soften. Add the juniper berries, cumin seeds, sauerkraut, apples and apple juice. Bring to the boil and cook over a gentle heat for 30–40 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve with boiled or roast pork. It’s a great dish for vegetarians, just eaten with bread.
