      I always make ths sauerkraut and is fantastic!! Other than being messy to make it is very easy. I usually make about 15 quarts and it keeps forever! I just used a quart I found that is at least 3 yrs old. Rinse it well before cooking and I usually fry mine up with diced bacon and onions sauted in a fry pan. We love it!!

      I made 12 quarts last year and 40 this year. Hope the ones this year are as good as the ones I made last year. This is a great recipe. A.Wood
