Hi, can you use white caster sugar like you do in Kombucha?

Hi Roxy, yes, you can! Though Sauerkraut will still ferment without the sugar so you can omit if you like. Happy fermenting! ❤️ ~ Iris@FMTV

Why use sugar or honey? I thought that would attract bad bacteria which would eat up good bacteria, defeating the purpose of fermented veggies in the first place. please explain. Thanks

Hi Barbara, sugar is the food for the bacteria. The sugar is eaten by the bacteria during the fermentation process. You do have the option though to use either a veggie starter culture or 1 tbsp rapadura or raw honey. Hope this helps :) Happy fermenting! ~ Iris

I made fermented beets yesterday, but it didn’t mention removing the lid each day, should I be doing this. I also made the sauerkraut today, the recipe does not say how much culture? I made some culture from yogurt, how long will this be good to use?

Hi Gail, yes, we would suggest to open the lid to let it 'burp' daily, by opening the lid each day to let the excess gas out. You may use one sachet of starter culture. This recipe will last 12 months unopened, and 2 months once opened. Hope this helps :) ~ Iris
