A couple of months ago I saw Christy's directions for making kraut. I remember when I was a kid my grandmother made kraut in the old churn and kept a plate on top. It seemed to take forever for the cabbage to become kraut. Then as I got old my mother made some one year. A couple of years later I asked her if she was going to make some more and she said it was a lot of work and you could buy a can for $.79. So I always bought kraut. I am a firm believer that you can not eat a hotdog without kraut so I always keep some in the fridge.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago when I found this recipe. She advertises that you can make this kraut without any special equipment. All this recipe takes is a little time. You can make this in a mason jar with a lid. I had a crock with a latch top and it worked well. Now on to the directions.
So making homemade kraut is very easy these days.
