kraut magic

My favorite kraut is mixed green cabbage/red cabbage/carrot, but I like to ferment red cabbage alone for its chemical magic.

When you shred the red cabbage and put it in the jar, it's very blue. The liquid in the jar starts out blue and slowly turns pink.

In this jar, you can see that the old liquid in the saucer is a deep purple while the more acidic juice in the jar has become a vivid fuchsia.
