"In order to ferment the sauerkraut optimally, store it in a darker place at room temperature for 3 – 7 days. Afterwards, you can move it to a cooler place to keep fermenting for 2 – 4 weeks. Always remember: the cooler the place, the longer it will take to ferment. Start with our basic recipe, before experimenting with more spices, adding apple juice, or more!"
