Sauerkraut!

I’m enjoying Saverne Artisan Organic lately, mainly because it’s available at Wally’s.
What’s everybody using?

Whatever comes in a refrigerated deli jar - usually German style.

I make slaw but not sauerkraut. I should, though.

My brand is just the store brand, decanted into glass.



Hurts like a bastid...

It would be interesting to go homemade, I should try it sometime.
On the other hand, it’s a once while craving so…
Maybe I should try a different mustard instead haha.

Long-time fan, used to make my own in 3-gallon German clay harsch pots. All that friendly bacteria made for great skin and super clear eyes.

Now a days, I'm into convenience and it's just Bubbies. Same thing with their dills. They key is non-pasteurized, so the good bacteria are still alive and working.

Thanks for the link to Bubbies. It's been a long time since I bought/used their product and I certainly never saw their web site. It was fun to take a look, and I might try a recipe or two.

Just the nudge I needed before going shopping this morning. I've got some fermenting now. I'm thinking Brats and @#$%& for Sunday.

I make my own... it's quite easy, and lasts for months once it goes from kitchen counter into the fridge.
Chop, weigh, weigh out 2.5% of the cabbage weight of salt, add seasoning to taste to the salt, and pack in the crock layering salt/seasoning and cabbage. Add a weight on top...
Leave it on the counter for a few days to a couple weeks (depending on your temperatures) until it's "sour" enough for you.
You'll want a crock that has some form of "airlock" to keep things out while allowing the '@#$%& to off-gas.

I just finished eating a batch of "kimchi-@#$%&" (a sort of hybrid recipe) I made before Christmas break... still crunchy, nice and sour.
Time to start another batch! I may add shredded carrot to the next batch...

Most definitely. The problem with jars is finding something large enough. The process of making pickles for 1 quart is about the same as 4-6 quarts. But get as large a jar as possible. If you can, get some starter uice from Bubbies, or some other raw sauerkraut, as that will speed things up.

Yup...
Just keep it in the dark, and keep the cabbage under the liquid it secretes after crunching it up with your hands with the salt.
A half-gallon mason jar, with an airlock lid ($10-12 on Amazon), with a towel over it makes a fine fermenter.
