The Most Well Known German Food: Sauerkraut!

Sauerkraut is finely sliced green cabbage that has been fermented by lactic acid bacteria (Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus). The fermentation process (also known as pickling) gives the cabbage a distinct sour flavor, which is where it gets the name Sauerkraut (sour cabbage).

Finished Sauerkraut can be purchased in many German food stores as well as in many markets. Sauerkraut can be eaten raw, which has many vitamins and minerals. However, if you're not used to the high amounts of lacto-bacilli found in raw Sauerkraut, it might be best for your stomach to cook it.

Check out our "Sauerkraut" page for recipes, cooking tips, and more!
