Making homemade raw sauerkraut can be much quicker and easier than it may seem. Though you could allow it to sit and ferment for weeks, raw sauerkraut is generally ready within 4 to 7 days. The longer it ferments, or cultures, the more probiotic support it offers your digestive system. Though there are numerous ways to complicate this recipe, I'm keeping it to the bare minimum of ingredients to show how easy it really is. Cultured foods aid in digestion as well as provide friendly-bacterial support for your intestines. This is especially great in winter when we tend to eat less produce, and is especially beneficial for vegetarians, vegans and raw foodists.
