Recipe of the month: Sauerkraut Spread

One of my favorite winter dinners (or appetizer) consist of Sauerkraut Spread on fresh bread. Not to mention how much it’s simple-yet-deliciousness helps decide what to prepare!

Sauerkraut Spread

300-400 grams sauerkraut
3-4 tablespoons sour cream
homemade mayonnaise (1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon mustard, sunflower or olive oil)
salt, pepper, garlic (or garlic powder)

Chop the sauerkraut into thin strips if it was fermented as a whole cabbage. Press out the excess pickling fluid.

Prepare the mayonnaise by adding small amounts of oil to the egg yolk and mustard while mixing vigorously to disperse the oil.
You can also make this in a food processor, just be sure to set it on low speed so the end result won’t separate.
The mayonnaise is done when the emulsion is more resistant to mixing and has a considerably light color compared to how it started out.

Mix together the sauerkraut with the mayonnaise, add the 3-4 tablespoons of sour cream (or even less depending on how creamy you want it), season with salt, pepper and pressed garlic or garlic powder and you’re all ready to spread it on your slices of bread.

Bon appétit!
