Sauerkraut with beetroot!

This Beetroot Kraut has the usual mix of:

one cabbage
two onions
one clove of garlic
about 1 tablespoon of sea salt (see salt guide for more guidance).
two medium beetroots

Just thinly slice the cabbage and onions, dice the garlic finely and grate the beets. Add the salt and mix together. Crush the ingredients until they become softer and the water starts to come out and pack into a sterile jar (see container guide if unsure about which container to use). Seal ensuring the vegetables are completely submerged in the brine and leave for a week or two to ferment!

Here is a link to another video I did which has step by step instructions on how to make the kraut for anyone who is unsure:

And here is a link to an article where I got the information on how effective beets are at promoting fermentation:
