You need 2 ingredients to make good Sauerkraut. All you need is salt, and cabbage.And with Oktoberfest being here, now is the perfect time to start some.


EQUIPMENT:


INGREDIENTS:

Ratio: 2% salt from total weight of cabbage

  • Green Cabbage

  • 2% kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut cabbage in half, and then in quarters.

  2. Slice out core.

  3. Slice thinly as possible

  4. Weigh on scale, the multiply the total weight of cabbage by .02 to determine the salt needed.

  5. Bruise cabbage so it releases a lot of liquid. This is about a 2-5 minute process.

Yooo thanks for this. Your site is clean. I came back for fermentation recipes and saw the kimchi and sauerkraut. I went with sauerkraut first because it's easier and then I'm hitting on papa's kimchi next lol. Little typo on number 4 by the way. It should be "then" and not "the".
