Saurkraut

So this city kid tried her hand at making saurkraut.  I was SO excited to get my Harsch Gairtopf Fermenting Crock Pot from my husband for Christmas!  Eating raw saurkraut is supposed to be wonderful for your digestion and extremely healthy!  Lots of lactic acids! 

Well I researched, read, and watched videos of various people making saurkraut...and it seemed like an easy process with a fabulous outcome.  You can ferment all kinds of vegetables in the Harsch Crock Pot - and I'm going to try them all and keep you posted!! 

Next I want to use my Ohio stoneware crock too - I have heard stories about relatives making pickles in this sort of crock...and if it worked for them it'll work for me too!

Here's my kraut photo:
