I Made Raw Sauerkraut and YOU Can, Too!
Sauerkraut is very good for you and very tasty too.
It is made by a natural process of lacto-fermentation. You can read more about lacto-fermentation here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauerkraut
Safety information from Wikipedia:
"Once made, sauerkraut is a very safe food because its high acidity prevents spoilage. USDA also recommends pasteurizing sauerkraut for storage. This is not necessary if the raw sauerkraut has been properly made and stored, and will needlessly diminish the nutritional value. A slimy or excessively soft texture, discoloration, or off-flavor may indicate spoilage."
