Making Sauerkraut is Easy and Fun:
- It is best to get nice big heads of cabbage that are ready to burst open—or have already burst open. Make your “Kraut” the same day as picked—don’t let the cabbage dry out.
- Remove outside leaves and cut into quarters. I leave the hearts in for flavor.
- Shred the cabbage. (if you are luck enough to have a sauerkraut cutting board—good for you.) Other wise just slice it into thin slices, maybe the thickness of a silver dollar.
- Sprinkle on a tablespoon of salt for each 5-pounds. Sea salt or pickling salt is good.
- Now get angry, or at least aggressive, and crumble, squash, smash or just press it so the salt will help get the water to come out.
- Press it into a jar, stainless steel pot—anything but aluminum.
Now It is Done and We Must Let It Ferment
- The fun part begins. Sample this Kraut each day. Don’t eat all of it before all four stages of fermentation is through.
- To make this in the kitchen, just let it set on the table—or in the corner for about 28 days. It needs pressed down each day. Try to keep the contents under the water. Add some water if you must.
- If you are making a bigger batch, it is best to weight it down so it stays under the water. Cut a cloth, maybe a piece of old bed sheet or cheesecloth and place inside to cover the, about to be, kraut. I like to place a saucer, dish or other object on top.
- Put a little salt into a freezer bag, add a little water and seal it.
- Place the bags of water (they should not be too full, maybe ¼ the way.) All over the top so that no air gets in. No sense letting the mess dry out.
