I am not totally convinced by the whole concept of SUPERFOODS; especially of the type 'Berries found only on the northern bank of some Tibetan mountain lake, that can only be reached by a tribe of Arab Pygmies, riding on the backs of female Yaks'. I'm sure you know the hype!
However I do believe in the healing qualities of Oats, Garlic, dark green vegetables, and Choucroute; plus a few others.
Choucroute's qualities rely on that fact that it is fermented; a process that increases its nutritional and health benefits.
It is known to aid digestion, improve the immune system, aid weight loss, and reduce stress.
It is also supposed to reduce the risk of cancer, invigorate the heart, and make stronger bones; but what 'superfood' doesn't? Who knows!
Regardless of all the above, I do love the taste of Choucroute. It is cheap, plentiful, and good for you. To me no winter would be the same without it. We tend to consume ours in the 'Alsace' way, but it's just as good with a pork chop.
The above half kilo of cooked Choucroute cost a mere €1.50. A bargain!
