    This beats store bought kraut 10 to 1....... easy to make and well worth the
    effort​



    Kraut ​
    Shred Cabbage with kraut cutter or slaw cutter
    mix into cabbage:
    1 tsp salt & 1 tsp sugar per qt of cabbage
    (put a couple quart in and add salt & sugar as you go for good mixture)
    Place in a crock or 5 gallon plastic bucket, Cover with boiling water to cure. Keep it submerged by placing a stoneware plate on top. Turn the kraut a couple times daily.

    Allow to cure to taste (3-5 days at least). Pressure qts. at 10# for 10 minutes.​
