Cranberries are an underused and under appreciated fruit. Appearing only as a minor condiment next to the turkey at Thanksgiving or subjected to the indignity of being jellied and crammed into a tin can, this crimson fruit should be elevated in our kitchens and dinning tables and relished for its delicious tangy flavor, super nutritiousness, and beauty. And did you know that cranberries are indigenous to North America? And here are more fun facts about this brilliant red winter berry:
1. Make a brine by dissolving sea in the filtered water.
2. Place ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
3. Put mixed ingredients into a one-quart, wide-mouth mason jar, and assemble Kraut Source on the jar according to directions.
4. Allow to ferment at room temperature, away from direct sunlight, for 10 - 12 days.
5. When ready, remove Kraut Source, and cover jar with the lid and ring. Store in the refrigerator.
*Fresh would be optimal, but frozen cranberries can be used.
Note: You can keep the cranberries whole, or cut some in half. They look really nice when sliced revealing a four-petal design.
