Until today I had never ever, not once tried sauerkraut. I had no desire to try it either. I just imagined sauerkraut as being something nasty, possibly smelly. The closest I had ever been to sauerkraut was the condiment cart at Costco, and that sauerkraut certainly did not look appealing!
Over the past number of weeks I have seen numerous articles proclaiming the health benefits of fermented foods like sauerkraut. The articles were interesting, I thought, but they were not enough to persuade me to try sauerkraut. Then a friend posted something about it, and I was encouraged to give it a try.
Today I picked up a jar and gave it a try. Guess what? I liked it!
