Sauerkraut making

Does anyone make their own sauerkraut? I am planning on starting a batch on October 24, and want to try it 2 different ways, one in my crock, and other in a Fido glass jar. Any hints from the pro's? One thing about sauerkraut, either you love it or you don't. I can't wait to eat good enzymes and probiotics...

well, for one thing, always used plain salt rather than iodized. as I understand it, the iodine is bad for the critters we are trying to grow. I can't remember anything else. I think I did it twice and said ENOUGH. I hope you like it better than I did!

I'm interested in what you are making.
I've fermented lots of things, ie., buttermilk, kefir, yogurt, yeasty stuff,
but I've never tried sauerkraut. Go to Google and see what the experts are doing.
Keep us posted and if you find a great recipe, please share.

Good luck.

I made some years ago and decided since I was the only one who liked it, it was easier to buy a jar now and then. As I remember, it was a lot of work............... Ann

I have been doing it all summer to heal my gut. Google making "fermented cabbage in mason jars". It's so easy and fun.

Fermented foods are very good for you.Great probiotics.And not just cabbage.

Checked this out on Google, and it looks great. Thanks.
I like that it is crunchy. We made kraut in a large vat years ago. We ultimately decided that it was not worth the effort, as others have said. It also made the house smell awful.

This mason jar procedure sounds effortless, and you can decide when to stop or slow the process by tasting it. A jar of this stuff in the fridge will be a welcome addition. I like the idea of holding the kraut down into the container with a folded cabbage leaf on top. That should work.
