Making Sauerkraut Simple Deliciousness
There are few foods more polarizing than sauerkraut. Some people love it and some people hate it. It is no different here on the homestead.

We had picked up a nice 5 gal crock at a yard sale so we had the perfect vessel. So we took our abundance of cabbage and went to work.
We were immediately amazed by the list of ingredients, cabbage and kosher salt, that was it. We started by taking our cabbages (5 pounds) and removed the outer leaves, we then washed any dirt from the head.
We quartered the heads and removed the stem, setting it aside. Next we shredded the cabbage by cutting thinly with a sharp knife.
