Making : Sauerkraut

DSC_0010 copy

Few weeks ago we had some friends over for dinner and we realized we didn’t have any of our home-made sauerkraut.  Because we were grilling sausages, we had to go buy some, and I realized how much I prefer the one we make at home.

So, I got a cabbage and made sauerkraut few days ago.  It is still fermenting, so I can’t say how good it is just yet, but I really like making it.

Thanks to the publisher of the book I usually use, I was able to post the recipe two years ago here in the blog. I used the same one this time around.
