In Serbia, each household makes winter provisions in autumn. Besides ajvar, peppers, jams, sugared fruit we make and sauerkraut.
Salted heads of cabbage put in vat or barrel and pour with water and vinegar. Cover it. Leave heads of cabbage a month to come along.
Sauerkraut is eaten as a salad or can be cooked.
In any case, it is very healthy.
We shred head of sauerkraut on noodles, put oil and add a little ground red pepper. This is a wonderful and refreshing salad. Goes great with roasted potatoes and cheese.
