    Dwynnie's Note:

    This is a combination of recipes from "Eating Well" and "Everyday Food" and I figured that I would post, as there doesn't seem to be a really quick (as in doesn't take 6 weeks) sauerkraut recipe on here! It isn't quite like the real thing, but is very easy! I hope that you enjoy!

      Incredible! Perfect answer to wanting sauerkraut today, when you can't wait two months. I had to improvise a tiny bit, didn't have all ingredients exactly as stated. I halved the recipe, having only half a cabbage to work with. I also didn't have enough apple cider vinegar, so i used what i had and made the rest up with red wine vinegar, probably about 1:1 ratio. Also didn't have apple cider, so i just cut up a cooking apple quite small, used that in place. I didn't add any water. The result is awesome. Quite brilliant, very tasty, and took less than an hour. The other thing I like about this is that it's good for pregnant women, who are not supposed to eat raw fermenting foods, like true sauerkraut. This is an excellent alternative, and perfectly pregnancy-safe.

      I left out onion (MIL doesn't like) and caraway (I don't like), I used cranberry-pom juice (what I had), and I added a splash of dry ground mustard and pickling spices. The taste test results from my German-heritage in-laws is that I can make them sauerkraut any time, please. So for not having to wait for weeks and getting an un-canned "seal" of approval, it's great!

      PS: the typical water amount for a quick sauerkraut is twice as much water as vinegar. I used an equal amount because I know these folks like the vinegar tang.

      Great Kraut. We doubled the recipe, and used a greater proportion of cider to vinegar, and no water. Made it in a pot instead of a pan due the quantity. I plan on tripling the recipe when my Uncle comes. Thank you for sharing this excellent twist on kraut
