Квашенная Капуста

Квашенная Капуста, or home-made sauerkraut, is a completely vegetarian dish consisting mostly of cabbage, which is an excellent source of Vitamin C. It also contains significant amounts of glutamine, an amino acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties. In the next post I will show you how to make an amazing Russian-style vinaigrette using this sauerkraut.

1 cabbage............$1.80
3-4 carrots..........$o.50
1Tbs salt
5Tbs sugar


  1. Check out the cabbage at the new Buy Low market (previously Reams, the one by Shopko and the (previously) dollar movie (Movies 8).) 7 (lbs?)/$1. I'm serious. Maybe that was just last night (they have Wednesday produce specials), but it might still be on some sort of sale! ($15 for a CARTFUL of produce.)
