Sauerkraut has been a staple for hundreds of years. This is great on its own or as a topper for a variety of foods. Refrigerate or freeze sauerkraut once it is fermented.

Time P7DT25m

Yield 24

Number Of Ingredients 5

5 pounds cabbage, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons sea salt
3 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste
water to cover

Steps:

  • Mix cabbage, onion, sea salt, and garlic together in a bowl. Firmly pack mixture into a large, clean, food-grade plastic bucket. The cabbage will start to make its own brine as the salt starts to draw out the water of the cabbage.
  • Fill a large, clean, food-grade plastic bag with water and place over the salted cabbage mixture so none of the cabbage is exposed to air.
  • Allow cabbage to ferment in a cool, dry place, 1 to 4 weeks (depending on how tangy you like your sauerkraut). The temperature of the room you ferment the sauerkraut in should not rise above 70 degrees F (21 degrees C).

HOMEMADE SAUERKRAUT



Homemade Sauerkraut image

You only need two ingredients (and a little patience) to make fresh, zippy homemade sauerkraut at home. Put down that jar and get those brats ready! -Josh Rink, Taste of Home Food Stylist

Provided by Taste of Home

Time 45m

Yield 40 servings (about 10 cups).

Number Of Ingredients 3

6 pounds cabbage (about 2 heads)
3 tablespoons canning salt
Optional: 2 peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith apples, 2 thinly sliced sweet onions, 2 teaspoons caraway seeds and 1 teaspoon ground coriander

Steps:

  • Quarter cabbages and remove cores; slice 1/8 in. thick. In an extra-large bowl, combine salt and cabbage. With clean hands, squeeze cabbage until it wilts and releases liquid, about 10 minutes. If desired, add optional ingredients., Firmly pack cabbage mixture into 4-quart fermenting crock or large glass container, removing as many air bubbles as possible. If cabbage mixture is not covered by 1-2 inches of liquid, make enough brine to cover by 1-2 inches. To make brine, combine 4-1/2 teaspoons canning salt per 1 quart of water in a saucepan; bring to a boil until salt is dissolved. Cool brine before adding to crock., Place crock weight over cabbage; the weight should be submerged in the brine. Or, place an inverted dinner plate or glass pie plate over cabbage. The plate should be slightly smaller than the container opening, but large enough to cover most of the shredded cabbage mixture. Weigh down the plate with 2 or 3 sealed quart jars filled with water. If using a glass container with a lid, cover the opening loosely so any gas produced by the fermenting cabbage can escape. Alternately, you can cover the opening with a clean, heavy towel. If using a crock, seal according to manufacturer's instructions. , Store crock, undisturbed, at 70°-75° for 3-4 weeks (bubbles will form and aroma will change). Cabbage must be kept submerged below surface of the fermenting liquid throughout fermentation. Check crock 2-3 times each week; skim and remove any scum that may form on top of liquid. Fermentation is complete when bubbling stops. Transfer to individual containers. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

HOMEMADE SAUERKRAUT



Homemade Sauerkraut image

This is a comfort food that reminds me of visiting my grandparents. They always had kielbasa and sauerkraut among the holiday feasts. Kielbasa tastes best when it is sliced thickly and placed on the bottom of the pot before you begin cooking.

  • Remove the outer leaves of your cabbage, slice it in half and remove the core. Shred your cabbage by either using the slicing blade of a food processor or by using a sharp knife. Transfer the shredded cabbage to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the salt to the shredded cabbage and use clean hands to massage the cabbage until the salt has dissolved and the cabbage has begun to wilt – massage for at least 5 minutes.
  • At this point it is helpful to allow the cabbage to rest for 20 to 30 minutes – the salt will continue to draw the liquid out of the cabbage and you will find a lot of liquid at the bottom of the bowl.
  • While the cabbage is resting wash your mason jar and lid well, and jelly jar – no need to sanitize but it should be freshly washed. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit just inside your mason jar, set aside.

  • 1. The first step in any fermentation project, no matter how basic, is cleanliness. You’ll need clean equipment, a clean product, and clean hands since you’ll be using them to incorporate the salt into the cabbage.
  • 2. Discard the outer leaves of the cabbage and the head of cabbage, then slice into quarters. Remove the core, and thinly slice or shred crosswise. (Depending on how long you like your cabbage ribbons, you can halve each quarter again for shorter strands.)
  • 3. In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the salt on top of the cabbage. Massage the salt into the leaves with your hands for about 5 minutes, until leaves are beginning to feel wilted and watery. If using caraway seeds, add to the large bowl and mix to evenly distribute.
  • 4. Transfer the cabbage, including any liquid, to your jar, tamping down occasionally to make more room. Cover the mouth of the jar with a cheesecloth, and secure it with a rubber band.

  • Wash your mason jar, tools, and hands thoroughly with natural soap and hot water. When fermenting, you want to give the healthy bacteria a clean environment to prevent mold. I usually pour boiling water into and over the Mason jar after washing it with soap to kill off any potential lingering bacteria.
  • Cut your cabbage into quarters, leaving the root end attached. Discard the outermost layers, then save a few of the next layers to weigh the cabbage down in the jar. Do not wash the cabbage—you’re relying on the natural healthy bacteria that live on the leaves for the fermentation process.
  • Choose your preferred texture. Thinly slice each cabbage quarter into ribbons, or shred it on a box grater for finer sauerkraut. Same with the other tools, if you use the box grater, make sure it’s very clean.
  • Add the shredded cabbage to a large mixing bowl and cover with salt. Using clean hands, massage the salt into the cabbage for about 30 seconds. It will start to release more liquid. Let it sit for about 3-5 minutes to allow the salt to draw more juice from the cabbage. Massage again for another 30 seconds. It will be very soupy, which is good! The resulting liquid is your fermenting brine.

  • Cut the cabbage into quarters, then remove the core. Thinly slice the cabbage, then place it in a large shallow bowl. Sprinkle with the sea salt. Knead the cabbage by hand or with a potato masher for 5 to 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, there will probably be enough liquid released from the cabbage to cover it.
  • Place ¼ of the cabbage in a quart sized mason jar, then pack it down with a wooden spoon. Repeat with the remaining cabbage, packing down a couple more times. Pour in the brine (the liquid that was released during the kneading process), and add as much water as needed to cover the cabbage. Leave at least an inch of space at the top of the jar. Place a small glass jar (or fermentation weights) on top of the cabbage to keep the cabbage fully submerged.
  • Cover the jar with butter muslin or a standard jar lid. If you use a lid, make sure to open it every couple days to release the pressure. Place the jar in a bowl in case it leaks. Store it at room temperature (60 to 70 degrees) for at least a week. Taste and see if it’s reached the tanginess you like, and once it has, transfer it to the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 6 months.

  • Use 1-1.5% of salt. If your cabbage weighs 1 kg, use 10-15 grams of salt. Mine weighed 1.3 kg and I used 20 grams of sea salt.
  • Now cut the cabbage into quarters and trim out the core. Using a sharp large knife, slice each quarter down its length into very thin ribbons. The thinner you will cut the cabbage, the better will be the result. You can also use a mandolin, however, please watch your fingers!
  • Transfer the sliced cabbage to a large and clean mixing bowl and add the salt. Wash your hands and then start massaging/kneading the cabbage. Squeeze it and massage it for 5-10 minutes, don't be gentle.

  • Slice the cabbage - Remove the outer leaves and cores from cabbage. (Compost them if you can!) Slice the cabbage into quarters for easier slicing. Then, thinly slice cabbage into very thin ribbons. If you have one, a food processor speeds up this process.
  • Add the salt - Place the thinly sliced cabbage in a large bowl (make sure it is clean too!). Sprinkle the salt over it. Knead and squish the cabbage/salt with your hands for about ten minutes. At first, it won't seem like it is doing anything at all, but be patient. After a few minutes, the cabbage will start releasing liquid and by the end, there should be enough liquid brine to cover the cabbage in the crock or jar. Add the caraway seeds at this point if you are using them.
  • Move it to the fermentation vessel - Stuff the cabbage very tightly into the jars or fermentation crock. Pour any liquid from the bowl into the jar. If needed, add just enough water to make sure the water/brine covers the cabbage entirely. If the cabbage is fresh, no liquid may be needed, but don't worry if you have to add a little water.

  • Remove any bruised or damaged exterior leaves from your cabbage, and then slice it in half cross-wise. Remove the cabbage's core, and then slice the cabbage into strips no wider than 1/8-inch thick.
  • Toss cabbage and salt together in a large mixing bowl and let it rest about 20 minutes, or until the cabbage begins to soften and release a little juice. Then squeeze the cabbage with your hands to to soften it even further, and help it to release more juice.
  • When the cabbage has become limp and has released ample juice, transfer it to your jar. Pack the sauerkraut tightly into your jar, using a kraut pounder or a wooden spoon, so that the cabbage continues to release its liquid and no air bubbles remain.
  • Continue packing the cabbage into the container until the cabbage is completely submerged by its liquid. Place weights over the cabbage, and then seal the jar with your airlock. Allow the cabbage to ferment at room temperature and away from direct sunlight at least 1 month, or until done to your liking. When the sauerkaut is sour enough for your liking, transfer it to the fridge where it will keep at least 6 months and up to 1 year.

From eatingwell.com
  • Rinse the cabbages under cool water and remove the tough outer leaves. Cut the cabbages into quarters and cut out the core. Using a large, sharp knife, a food processor with a slicing blade or a mandoline, very thinly slice the cabbage. Place about one-third of the cabbage in a large clean bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt; using clean hands, vigorously knead the salt into the cabbage until the cabbage starts to release a little liquid. Repeat with the remaining two-thirds of the cabbage and the remaining 2 tablespoons salt, vigorously kneading the salt into the cabbage after each addition.
  • Once all the cabbage is in the bowl, using both hands, massage the cabbage mixture vigorously, using your fingers to squeeze and bruise the cabbage, releasing as much of its liquid as possible, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the mixture and its liquid to a 5- to 6-quart glass, ceramic or stone container. Using your clean fists or a clean kitchen tool, pack the cabbage into the container with as much force as possible, removing all air pockets. Let stand, uncovered, for 2 hours. Pack the cabbage down once again. It should be completely covered in liquid. If not, add enough additional salt brine to cover.
  • Fill a sealable plastic bag (or bags) about two-thirds full with salt brine (instead of plain water in case they leak during fermentation). Place bag (or bags) directly on the surface of the cabbage mixture, using the bag(s) as water weights to keep the cabbage fully submerged at all times. Use enough water weights to cover the whole surface. Cover the container with a clean dish towel and place the lid on top. Place in a cool (60 degrees to 64 degrees F), dark place. The cooler the temperature, the slower the fermentation. If you want to speed up the process, place in a warmer spot, out of direct sunlight or heat.
