Not Run of the Mill Kraut

Postby irie1029 on Mon May 18, 2020 1:32 pm

Made a small batch of kraut 2 qts as i had leftover cabbage. It has a bite to it like horseradish was added. I really like it. In years of fermenting never had taste vary this much. Any ideas on how to replicate this kick?

Sorry for the late reply, and lucky you on your delicious kraut. Not sure what gives it the kick, but it could be the variety of cabbage. I remember as a kid reading a seed catalog and for some reason they had a discussion on how different parts of the country grew different cabbages for their cole slaw; how New England liked a spicier cabbage than the midwest.
I'm not sure why I remember that, as it was a long time ago, but I do, and perhaps it explains your kraut.

My experience has been that red cabbage tends more that way than green.
