Vegetarian Reubens

Tonight I made myself Vegetarian Reubens with Russian Dressing. I still like it a lot.

As I was cooking, I started to ponder: what the hell is sauerkraut? I understand it means "sour cabbage," but how is it made sour? Cole slaw is sometimes made with vinegar, so what happens to sauerkraut? So I looked it up. Seems as though it's cabbage that has been fermented with lactic acid. Sexy. Now you know.
