Momma is too tired to tell you about our seven-hour sauerkraut endeavors so she asked me to blog about it for her. First you need to start with about 40 pounds of cabbage. You could start with a more realistic amount, say, just one head of cabbage - but my mom likes to make really big messes. As for recipes, she didn't follow one, exactly but sort of used this one.
Next, shred some carrots. We used ten pounds today.
My mom wanted to work out her arms, so she used a giant stick (French rolling pin) as a kraut pounder.
Because we wanted to make a kickin' kraut (not a tame one) we decided to also add about 12 pounds of radishes and 10 pounds of onions and 6 cloves of garlic (thank you Kellogg Valley Farms). All shredded and stirred together in a 5 gallon bucket (twice). We also added some whey for good measure.
Lovin' being in the kitchen with my momma,
