Making Raw Sauerkraut - Video Demos
Here are some good demos on how to make raw sauerkraut. Sauerkraut provides great nutritional benefits to the diet when made as demonstrated below. I decided on these videos because each one highlights a different aspect of the process. I will also be posting a basic recipe for sauerkraut in the next few days (Lord willing).
Though the following videos only demonstrate making large quantities of "kraut", you can make just one quart at a time using a small head of cabbage (1 1/4 - 1 1/2 pounds). Pack the cabbage into a one-quart mason jar, making sure that the liquid covers the cabbage. You can weight it down with a plastic baggie filled with water. Let this set out on the cabinet for three days, then refrigerate. Stored in the refrigerator, the sauerkraut will last at least 6 months.
Listen for the ingredient amounts in the videos if you want to start your sauerkraut before I get the recipe posted.
