Homemade Sauerkraut

sauerkraut Woman making home fermented sauerkraut. homemade sauerkraut stock pictures, royalty-free photos & images 
Ingredients:

1 medium head of cabbage (2-4 pounds)
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt per pound



 
Directions:
1. Clean your cabbage by removing the outer leaves. Set aside one outer leaf that is in good condition. Weigh your cabbage so you know how much salt to use. Cut your cabbage into quarters and remove the core. Shred the cabbage into desired sized ribbons using either a knife, a food processor or a grater. 
2. Combine the shredded cabbage and salt in a bowl. Let sit for about 15 minutes. The salt will cause a lot of water to leach from the cabbage.
 3.Mix with your hands until the cabbage has released a lot of water and have become soft/wilted. This will take 5-10 minutes. 
4. Pack your cabbage into a clean quart-sized mason jar. Wide mouth is better for the next step. Make sure the cabbage is packed in tightly. Pour liquid from the cabbage bowl into the jar ensuring there is enough to completely cover the cabbage. If more water is needed, mix 2 teaspoons of salt with 1/2 cup water and add as much as is needed to cover the cabbage. 
5. Cut the cabbage leaf you set aside so that it fits within the jar. Use this leaf to cover the cabbage. Next you must weigh the cabbage down. You can use a smaller jar, a glass bowl, a ceramic ramekin, etc.
6. Seal the jar and set it somewhere out of the way, at room temperature. Make sure to open the jar on a regular basis, ie every other day, to release air pressure in the jar and to ensure the cabbage remains covered.
7. Your cabbage should bubble when fermentation begins. It will change colors from green to a pale yellow. It can take anywhere from one to two weeks for fermentation to be complete meaning it will be ready just in time for your Fourth of July hot dogs!
