Yep, we are just about out of the 6kgs of sauerkraut made previous and the kraut making has begun. This time, I am reducing my shredded cabbage to about 5kgs as I think I was pushing it to ensure sufficient 'burping' space with 6 kgs packed in the crock.
The shredding has gone smoothly with only one minor cut finger as I was washing my shredder. This compliments my shredded knuckle from some major granola bar making two days previous. Yes, apparently one can injure oneself pounding granola bar mixture into a pan with frenetic enthusiasm!
Only five weeks until this batch of kraut is ready. May we last until then.
