Apple Fennel Kraut

Apple Fennel Kraut

Making sure that you have a variety of fermented vegetables throughout your day is key to a healthy gut! This apple fennel kraut recipe is delicious and creative. Using fennel bulbs, granny smith apples, cabbage, and onion, it's a beautiful mix of sweet and salty! This recipe came to us from Petrece in the Gut Health Guru’s Facebook Group 


- 1 red cabbage (around 1550 grams)

- 40 grams salt

- 200g thinly sliced granny smith apples

- 100g thinly sliced fennel bulbs (if you don’t have fennel you can use 100g celery and 1 tsp fennel seed)

- 100g thinly sliced yellow onion

- 10g fennel seeds


  1. Sprinkle salt over shredded cabbage. Massage vigorously for about 5 minutes until it starts to release liquid
  2. Add all other ingredients to it and mix
  3. Add it into a mason jar and tap down hard (you can use this kit for jars and pebbles to keep it submerged!)
