Quick Turmeric Sauerkraut

Quick Turmeric Sauerkraut
Makes 1 quart

This isn’t exactly sauerkraut… but it’s also so much more than a quick pickle. Turmeric gives the extra antioxidant kick that’s so trendy right now.

3 ½ lb. head of cabbage, shredded
1 tablespoon salt, give or take, use your judgment
1 cup vinegar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon mustard seeds, if you have
1 tablespoon turmeric

In a large bowl, and working in batches, sprinkle cabbage with salt and massage. Do this for each batch of cabbage until very wilted and broken down.

In a small saucepan bring vinegar, water, mustard seeds and turmeric up to a simmer. Pour over cabbage and toss.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 months.
