    recipe, you put a bunch of cabbage in a big bucket, submerge in water, some salt, you put heavy weight on top to keep it under water. some time later you get the best thing.

    I just made a batch of sauerkraut myself. I think I had the real deal sauerkraut once before in my life. It is so good I can't believe what a great side dish it makes with everything.

    I used my crock from my crock pot and two heads of green cabbage. Slice it thin layer, salt and pack tight. I put a plate and a big 54oz container of coconut oil on top for the weight. It took about 24hrs for the natural water to leach out of the cabbage and cover the cabbage completely. I covered with a clean cloth and waited. I tasted it after one week, it was good but not ready just yet. A total of two weeks and it was ready to go. Put it in a plastic jar and in the fridge. I have been enjoying about a cup of it every day now for weeks.

    It is really simple and tastes so good.

    I, for one, would appreciate some clarification on how much salt "some" actually is.
    Thanks.

    I despise your entire lineage of sauerkraut.

    Your cabbage is a disgrace! You mock the cabbage of your ancestors.

    It's a precarious existence, that of a clown. He entertains to a point but is always in danger or crossing the line from entertainment to creepiness.

    ...2 to 3% salt is the recommended amount. I always measure, and 25g (close to two tbsp) per 1kg of cabbage seems to work the best...hebs

    ps...and even mixing of the salt is just as important as the ratio (cabbage-->salt)
