Tasty Fall Recipe– Easy Sauerkraut

Before the winter weather is upon us, you may want to use those final heads of cabbage!  Try this great recipe for:

Easy Sauerkraut

PACK shredded cabbage (I like to use a mandolin on the finest cutting blade) in clean canning jars. In each jar put in:
1 teaspoon salt                   1 Tablespoon white vinegar

Slowly pour boiling water over to fill jar.  Put on canning lids and rings.  Put the jars in a cool dark box (I use a black plastic storage bin/lid) for 6 weeks.  Mark your calendar for 6 weeks later.  Take jars out of bin and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes to seal.

When cool, store sealed jars in the dark box so the sauerkraut stays white. It is now ready to use.
