A Sour Experiment

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We’ve been harvesting cabbage and can only eat so much coleslaw so I decided to try something new.  Sauerkraut in a jar.  I did a lot of research and ended up deciding on a recipe that uses shredded cabbage, mustard seeds, juniper berries, pickling salt, honey and brine in a sterile jar.  It’s stored in a dark spot (our pantry) and should be ready in about 6 weeks.  I’ll keep you posted…

    I remember growing up my German Grandpa would make Sauerkraut at the ranch all the time..his method was a bit different…totally exposed! and the house would always smell like sauerkraut! Found memories of cabbage..;0) I wonder if you could make Kim-chi with it?

    I’ve never had Kimchi, and that’s just wrong!

    I really like kimchi! I think it would be a fun experiment. Let me know how your kraut works out (hey, that rhymes :)). We have this thing called the Perfect Pickler that’s supposed to be great for kraut but I haven’t tried it yet.
