Thursday 2/25/2016 What's on the table?

I made escarole and white beans for lunch today. 3 heads escarole, 2 cans cannellini beans, 8 cloves garlic, salt, ground pepper and red pepper flakes. ALL gone!! The 4 of us scarfed it down! LOL No leftovers to pack away.

Dinner will probably be waffles or pancakes made with TJ's buttermilk baking mix, maple syrup, butter, warm apple and berries compote and sour cream to top.

How do I make the kraut itself? I make up about 3 or 4 gallons of it twice a year using two ingredients: cabbage and salt. It ferments for 3 or 4 weeks, then I can it, and stop fermentation by processing it in a water bath.

As for the spicy kraut, I chop a small onion and two serrano chiles, then saute them in butter. I add a quart of drained kraut, a teaspoon of ground coriander seed, and 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (more for color than heat) and let it simmer for 20-30 minutes. Right before serving, I add a tablespoon of butter and squeeze the juice of a lemon over the top.
