This is one of the healthiest foods we can eat. I have it for breakfast with a hard boiled egg and avocado, and often add it to salads. If saurkraut is in your salad, you don't need a fancy dressing, just add olive oil.
Easy Homemade Saurkraut :
You will need: One head cabbage (I use red cabbage for added vitamins and cool color).
2 to 3 Tablespoons of salt (I use pink Himalayan Salt)
1/2 Cup Tuber Tonic
Cut the cabbage fine in a big bowl. Add a heaping teaspoon or Tablespoon of salt after each third and work the salt into the cabbage with your hands after ach addition,or smash the cabbage and salt with a potato masher.
Once you have all the cabbage and salt mixed together, add the 1/2 Cup Tuber Tonic and mix thoroughly.
Divide the Saurkraut into two quart jars and press it down so that the cabbage is covered with liquid . If there's not enough liquid, add more Tuber Tonic. Place a lid on each jar, loosely enough for gas to escape as fermentation starts. Leave the jars at room temperature for 3 to 7 days. Taste your saurkraut periodically and when it is the correct taste and texture, place it in the refrigerator, and begin using it right away.
How To Make Tuber Tonic November 16 2015
Tuber tonic is made of roots, bark and berries! Boil it!
Place 2 Tbsp Tuber Tonic in 1 Quart water, bring it to a rolling boil. Turn your heat down and simmer for two minutes. Strain as you pour it out. It keeps well in a thermos, or can be reheated easily. You can refill the water and boil it again, another two times.
Tuber Tonic is 100% Organic Herbal Tea, made with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, elderberries and black pepper. It's delicious and good for you, especially if you boil it.
Big Changes to Mendocino Tea Company July 29 2015
Tuber Tonic, with all it's deliciousness (is that a word?) and it's healthy attributes, will be dominating the web site from now on. The original blend, which features turmeric, ginger, elderberry, cinnamon and black pepper will head the page.
Many more creations will be added over time. The first, Super Tuber Tonic (double turmeric for those who need it more than the other ingredients) is already there as well. I have been studying spices and herbs and creating more regularly. Some to look for in the future are: Tulsi Tuber Tonic, Uber Tuber Tonic (with Black Cumin Seed), Tuber Tonic Express (with a lovely Darjeeling added for a bit of caffeine), and Tropical Tuber Tonic (with Hibiscus, which makes a fantastic Iced Tea).
Your old favorites like Mendocino Sunrise and Mendocino Sunset, will still be on the page, but will be more in the background. We strive to keep the page easy to use when you are ordering, but will also use it for a more prominent blog, and interesting facts, articles and pages that we would like to share.
Please share your thoughts with us, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
