This red cabbage is delicious with a little ginger. I made this specifically for those who use the fodmap diet. Sauerkraut made from green cabbage is high fodmap, due to the amount of mannitol which is a sugar alcohol and it belongs in the ‘Polyol’ group within the fodmap acronym. However red cabbage that is fermented is considered low to moderate and might be better tolerated and one spoonful with a meal would be the recommended amount to start with to see how your body responds.
You can check the vegetables every day to make sure they are fully submerged in the water. If they have risen above the water, simply push them down so they are fully covered by the water or add more water to cover. If any white spots formed because the veggies rose above the water, do not worry. Remember, this isn’t harmful. Just scoop out the vegetables that have the white spots on them and push the rest back under the water. These can last at least 9 months or longer in your fridge.
