This is a lovely-tasting kraut but can turn out a little bitter because of the fresh turmeric. I love the bitterness as it is only slight but if you don’t like bitter, use half of the turmeric. Remember that turmeric is a true super-herb and has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties so it is a good ingredient to eat regularly if not every day. Turmeric may even help delay ageing and to combat age-related chronic diseases, help with depression, and lower the risk of heart disease, and improve brain function and our immune system. We could all do with some of those properties.

I use white cabbage in this recipe as I love the yellow colour the turmeric gives the kraut. This sauerkraut goes well with most dishes and is great with curry dishes, salads and in coleslaws. Have a tablespoon or two with your meal to aid digestion.
