Good Morning. Now that I have the cabbage all cleaned off the counters, table and floor, I will show you what I have been doing this morning.Making Sauerkraut
I have done this once before and for a year the jars sat on a shelf in the basement. I was afraid to eat them. My friendly neighbor heard my story, asked how I made it and told me to eat it as sauerkraut was almost impossible to spoil. I believed her and lived to tell the story. :) So here is the start of another batch.
She told me that I could put a bag of water on top of the cabbage, tucked in all good and no air would get in and there would be no scum. Woopie! I have wasted a lot of cabbage after looking at that scum, so I'm hoping for the best here. I don't have a crock without a crack, so I have this in three gallon jars and right now it's hiding in the basement stairwall in the dark. My cousin told me that if you leave it in the light, it turns a yucky yellow color. Hmm. So that's what happened last time.
So next on my list is pizza sauce. I found a recipe to can some on cooks.com and am working on it today. I need to get down and get it on the stove and put the spices in. Wish me luck.
