This 4th of July, when your smashing down hamburgers, freedom fries and beers with the American Flag on them, why not add a little color to your side dish?

Traditionally fermented saurkraut is a great way to bring out nutrients, aid digestion and preserve seasonal vegetables. But, I bet you didn't know it's also a great way to add a gimmicky feel to your BBQ.

So throw a little red (pepper), white (onion) and blue (berry) into your next batch of kraut. My original recipe for this simple fermented food is here.

These colors don't run! (but they taste pretty good).
