Sauerkraut belongs to Germany, as it does on an American bratwurst. Yet Sauerkraut juice does not originally come from Germany and is older than any historic building in the U.S.A.
Sauerkraut juice is more expensive than beer
Clocking in at around 1.70 Euros per liter, or converted to 6.40 Euros per gallon (That’s roughly $6.75 per gallon!). Kraut juice is more expensive than milk, German beer or heck even a nutritious Big Mac Meal at McDonalds. Personally, I find this quite odd due to the fact that the juice is basically a byproduct of making home-made sauerkraut. How about Kraut juice propelled vehicles?
You can even buy a ridiculously overpriced liter of Sauerkraut juice on amazon… for 9 dollars; sheesh.
Its availability is phenomenal – Fermented cabbage juice
Whether you are at the local discounter of pharmacy, sauerkraut juice basically follows you wherever you go in Germany. Though it’s not considered as cool as Red Bull, nor as popular as Diet Coke, it can be helpful. Sauerkraut juice can be helpful, healthful and is even trending, outside the German provinces. But why is store-bought sauerkraut juice more expensive than German beer?
Sauerkraut juice = health in a jar – Sauerkraut health benefits
According to nutritionists and sauerkrautsaft.net, the juice itself contains almost half of the alphabet, including A, B, C, E and even K. This naturally means that it’s darn healthy, as long as the alphabet gets absorbed by your intestines before you get the runs. Sauerkraut sure can run, quite possibly faster than Forrest Gump.
Healing Running since 4 B.C. – Hippocrates
No neither the Germans, nor the Germanic folk discovered the healing potential of sauerkraut juice. The Greek physician and legend Hippocrates utilized fermented vegetables to linder digestive problems, constipation and malnutrition even before little baby Jesus met laid his eyes on Bethlehem. Meaning, sauerkraut juice celebrated its 2020th birthday this year. Happy Birthday!
Do it yourself – Homemade sauerkraut juice
Like all of the world’s greatest things alike: sauerkraut juice making needs time and a dash of love.
What you need: white cabbage, tap water, knife/ slicer, container, piece of wood, a stone and a dash of salt.
No we aren’t in the Stone Age folks, the “what you need list” should signal the simplicity of this great juice. After slicing the white cabbage with a knife or slicer, you should place the cabbage into a container. Add tap water into the container so that it is half full. After placing it in the container, place the piece of wood over the sauerkraut and place the stone on the piece of wood, applying pressure onto the sauerkraut.
