Swiss, and Germans, And Alsacenas, and people from Lille, and Belgians...almost everyone cooks it. Otherwise, wouldn't it be just cole slaw, minus the dressing?
No! Actually , it would then be cabbage,... raw cabbage.

Saurkraut is a fermented food where some bacteria that live right on the cabbage are given a chance to multipy and sort of " digest" the cabbage making it digestible for humans. The whole process involves grating , salting and waiting , leaving the cabbage to ferment in a cool place, like the old cellars. Kimchhi from Korea is similar.
