Ogulinski kiseli kupus/ogulinsko kiselo zelje Ogulinski kiseli kupus/ogulinsko kiselo zelje (Ogulin sauerkraut) is a product distinguished by its quality, a result of natural factors in the area where it is grown as well as the knowledge and skills used in its production in the wider area of the town of Ogulin and the municipalities of Josipdol, Plaški, Tounj and Saborsko. Ogulin cabbage, from which ogulinski kiseli kupus/ogulinsko kiselo zelje is made, differs from other cabbage varieties by its very long stem and its multitude of thin, almost translucent, and very flexible, thin-veined leaves. The heads are round, flat and firm, and the leaves yellow or golden yellow in colour. A natural fermentation process is used in the production of ogulinski kiseli kupus/ogulinsko kiselo zelje, with a salt solution as the only typical addition. Anaerobic conditions lead to the formation of lactic acid, a natural preservative. Ogulinski kiseli kupus/ogulinsko kiselo zelje owes its outstanding quality to the specific geographic conditions of the region where it is made, a combination of climate, soil type and the autochthonous cabbage variety. The human factor – the know-how and skills used in the production process – are instrumental to achieving this quality. The cabbage heads are hand-picked. Pickers judge their appearance, firmness and size on the spot and decide if they are ready to be harvested. The size of the cabbage head determines if it will go to the fermentation pool as a whole head or if it will be shredded prior to fermentation. To avoid damage to the cabbage heads during the picking process, the pickers sort them by hand, and they are then stacked in the fermentation pools by hand as well.
