I have been wanting to add more ginger and turmeric to my diet because they are both such super powerhouses for nutrition.  I often like to juice ginger and turmeric together, freeze in ice cube trays and use as ice cubes in water.  This Pineapple Sauerkraut Recipe with Ginger and Turmeric is a great way to enjoy those benefits and support your digestion!

I saw some recipes floating around the web that combined pineapple with ginger and turmeric and I thought…wow!…that sounds like the perfect ferment.  We are obsessed with fermented foods over here at Oh Lardy!

It is so easy to make any variation of sauerkraut recipe by just taking shredded cabbage and throwing a bunch of other delicious ingredients in there.  We love all kinds: beet kohlrabi, traditional kraut, even coleslaw!

Does the topic of fermenting baffle you?  We created a Fermenting eCourse just for you and when you sign up, we will send you a Quick Start Guide!  Grab the eCourse and the guide here!

I didn't even really measure for this recipe, so use amounts that make sense to you!  It will taste great no matter what!

  1. Turmeric and Ginger really are powerhouses of nutrition! I can’t imagine how great it can be for your stomach when you include probiotics from sauerkraut, ginger, AND turmeric! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I really want to try this at home.

  2. This is my favorite fermentation recipe. I have made it several times and always like to have some in the fridge.

  3. Marshal leave it in a cool dark space. Refridge is to slow the ferment down.
    After 3 months the ferment comes close to stopping. From then on the flavor mellows out and it gets less crispy. I have Mrs it sitting on counter for a year and everyone said it is great

  4. So you have to leave it for 4-6months? Is that how long it takes ? Looking at getting into fermented food making. Been buying it but now I want to make it.
