I made my first batch of sauerkraut today. I was amazed at how easy it is.

I shredded two heads of cabbage to make around five pounds. This bowl was full to the top. I sprinkled salt over each layer and mixed it in, giving it a final toss at the end.

I used the plastic pusher from my Victorio strainer to pack the sauerkraut. I took the bowl outside first and pounded it on the back steps, then finished packing it into the jars.

I then realized I didn't leave enough room at the top for the bags of water I wanted to use to keep the sauerkraut packed down. A wide mouth pint jar came in handy. I can't wait to taste this in 4 weeks.
