I sent one of my pork-o-phile Zaar buddies a picture of my kraut and am posting the recipe at her request. Yes, you can make one head of cabbage at a time but I would go for about 50 pounds! It is that good. Cooking time is fermenting time. Use lint free cloths. Have fun! UPDATE: Well, this has turned out to be my most requested home-canned treat from my BFF's! I have one friend making 50 pounds of cabbage to share with another. I hope you give it a try - it really is easy to do! 2010 Update - Well, I am doing almost 80 pounds of kraut this year! We found some huge cabbages at the farmers market and the pre-trim weight was about 80 pounds and it took me 9 hours to prep, shred and salt the cabbage. Check out the picture of the cabbage and the almost 17 pounds of watermelon! Please try this recipe if you love sauerkraut!
