      With sauerkraut, the salt prevents the growth of undesireable bacteria. The bacteria native to the cabbage is tolerant of the particular salt level used. This bacteria "eats" the sugars present in the cabbage and turns them into lactic acid. The lactic acid is what does the pickling and gives the sauerkraut its "sauer".

      I just rated this recipe 5 stars, & then realized that I probably should had added that I made a small portion of the recipe & did not do the waterbath at the end but just put the product into the fridge. It stayed crisp, which is what I wanted. I find most "store-bought" sauerkraut nowadays is limp & fairly tasteless. Thanks a million BarbaraK.
