    Sauerkraut.edu

    This is a very good site to follow.

    Wild Fermentation :: Making Sauerkraut is Easy!


    1 clean 5 gallon food grade bucket
    40lbs cabbage
    2 cups canning/pickling salt
    NOTE: Table salt will not work. There is an anti caking ingredient (sodium silicoaluminate) that will interfere with the fermentation process.



    Clean cabbage of dried/discolored leaves. Cut cabbage in half and cut the core out.



    Slice very thin. Add 1/4 cup canning/pickling salt to every 5 lbs. Mix thoroughly.



    Dump into bucket and pack as tight as possible.



    Repeat until bucket is full. What I found amazing is the last 10 lbs., the water was coming up to the top.

    Place a plate with a weight on top. We used a 1 gallon jar. Cover and set aside where the temps average 70 degrees.



    As you can see, the plate is already submerged. This can take up to 24 hours sometimes.

    We will start taste testing in 3 weeks.

    I'd rather graze on the cabbage fresh as is.

    With the right schnitzel I'd be all over it.

    I LOVE kraut.


    Well I should be more specific. I LOVE one type of kraut. Franks, in the green cans at the grocery store. I've never found any other brand that is even close to that delicious.

    IMG, this is the most troubling recipe so far for me. I do so love sauerkraut, and you make it look almost effortless. I have no doubt I'd ruin a few perfectly good cabbage in the process though and then Jenna would go hungry. No good has ever come from my attempts at food preparation: this attempt could create a micro famine. Still, with the potential for all that yummy sauerkraut, hmm, tough call.

    Are you compiling these recipes somewhere? If not, you should.

    Jmur : Frank's works for me. Not the Polish style though, not bitter enough. Not sure what else is different, but it doesn't tickle my buds.

    Hmmm, interesting idea there Mav!

    I only like kraut on hot dogs/polish dogs and I have to be in the mood for that.

    We have a church here that has a German Fest at Gluckstadt MS every year. They make gallons and gallons of kraut in big 3 gallon crocks for that event each year.

    I don't like the polish style either. Only the stuff in the green cans. The Franks Polish style, from what I've seen, has always been in sealed bags.

    Oh the huge manatee! This thread reminded me to pick some up and what do I find? The good stuff is all gone, only jar after jar of the Polish Style left!



    Lucky I know how to make my own now

    That actually took me less than 1 hour. A good knife is all you need to get-r-done!
