The success of the traditional food movement boosted the popularity of fermented foods, and we finally realized the wisdom of our ancestors.  People have consumed fermented foods for centuries, due to the numerous health benefits they offer. 

According to Jillian Levy, CHHC:

“Sauerkraut, a form of fermented cabbage, has been popular throughout Central Europe for hundreds of years. Sauerkraut combines one of the healthiest foods there is (cabbage) with one of the most beneficial and time-honored food preparation methods ever used (fermentation).

According to the Institute for Integrative Medicine at the University of Witten in Germany, sauerkraut is one of the most common and oldest forms of preserving cabbage and can be traced back as an important food source to the fourth century B.C.

Fermentation simply refers to an ancient technique and perseveration method that naturally alters the chemistry of foods. Similar to cultured dairy products like yogurt and kefir, sauerkraut’s fermentation process produces beneficial probiotics that are now linked to improvements in immune, cognitive, digestive and endocrine function.”

Sauerkraut is made by pickling cabbage in a process called lacto-fermentation. It is a rich source of enzymes that support digestion and help the absorption of nutrients in the body. 

However, the store-bought sauerkraut is pasteurized and treated with numerous chemicals, so it no longer offers the same benefits. 

Here is how to make your homemade sauerkraut and boost the intake of probiotics:

Homemade sauerkraut recipe

Ingredients:

  • 6 pounds cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons sea salt

Instructions:

Remove the large outer leaves of the cabbage, and shred the rest of it. In a bowl, mix it with the salt,  and in order to stimulate the release of its juices, massage it with your hands for about 15 minutes. 

Then, transfer the mixture to a larger fermentation container, pound it down for the juice to come up to the surface, and cover it with a plate. You should leave about 2 inches of space at the top.

Place a heavy glass jar with water over the plate to press it down and force the water out of it.

Keep the container at room temperature, in a cool, dark place, covered with a towel. 

The fermentation process will take about a month. Afterward,  store the sauerkraut in the fridge, and enjoy its benefits on a daily basis!

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
