Moon alert: April 9 is the Full Pink Moon! Crank the music! Spin, jump & dance! Then smile & make saurkraut!
"For the best-tasting sauerkraut, make it just after the full Moon."
--Old Farmer's Almanac
One of my kids called recently from an out-of-town trip to share his excitement & amazement at the sight of the night sky in a place without light pollution. The other one called to tell me all about the thrill of racing across the sand atop a speeding quad. Chills & thrills! I love it when they share things like that with so much enthusiasm -- it's a gift returned.
Making saurkraut is simple -- especially when the moon is just right. This fermentation site is great -- all kinds of info about the magic of harnessing microorganisms to transform food. Anyway, there's just nothing better than a big greasy brat slathered in homemade saurkraut & hot mustard and washed down with glass of homebrew.
