    Weewah's Note:

    Grandma adapted her old-timey recipe to make krout by the jar. When I was a kid we'd shred cabbage by the wash-tubs full outside under a walnut tree in the back yard. This is a short and sweet way to make delicious crisp krout by the quart or pint jar.

    Serves: 2-20



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Discard limp outer leaves of cabbage, or any that are marred or dirty.
    2. 2
      Shred your cabbage using an old fashioned krout cutter, it gives an authentic long shred that is best for krout.
    3. 3
      Pack plain cabbage into a pint or quart jar according to your preference. And by pack - I mean put some cabbage in the jar, then turn a wooden spoon, or a spatula or some such, upside down and cram that cabbage in as tightly as you can while filling the jar up.
    4. 4
      When the cabbage is packed to the neck of the jar dump in 1 heaping teaspoons salt and 1 heaping teaspoons sugar for a QUART jar.
    5. 5
      Use heaping 1/2 teaspoons salt and sugar for a PINT jar.
    6. 6
      Fill the STERILE jar with boiling water to within 1" of the rim and quickly cap with a STERILE new seal and ring.
    7. 7
      Turn upside down and let cool completely where air can move around the jar.
    8. 8
      This krout is NOT SWEET. The sugar aids in fermentation.
