     Lo and behold, it was amazing! And I could eat it by the forkful! The best part was that it didn’t have that slimy texture I disliked, and I could control how fermented it was, and how salty it tasted. All of the things I wasn’t a fan of with store bought kraut, I could easily control by doing my own ferment. I was hooked!
