How to Make Sauerkraut

Please Share Y'all!


Making your own sauerkraut is a simple process using only 2 ingredients and a wide mouth canning jar. Fermented vegetables, like sauerkraut, are good for the digestive system too. I found the homemade sauerkraut to be so much better than store bought stuff. So, if it’s so easy, what’s the downside? 

Well, you have to have a little patience. Preparation is simple but you’re going to have 3-4 weeks to enjoy the fruits of your labor. I promise it is worth the wait.

I learned how simple it is to make your own sauerkraut from Christy Jordan at Southern Plate. I’m posting the ingredients list here, along with a link to Southern Plate for the method.

You’ll be amazed at how you can get an entire head of cabbage into one jar in this process.
