Default ISO TNT Homemade Sauerkraut recipe

I am looking for a TNT recipe I can trust from forum members first.

I will do a google search also but would rather have a recipe I know had been tried and is good.

Thank you in advance.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I've made this small-batch sauerkraut several times. In fact, have some in fridge that's several months old. Guess I should use it or check on it.



What I do differently, is use one of the well-washed outer leaves cut/folded to fit the top and use a plastic bag full of additional brine to weight it down. I usually let it go for +/- 7 days to get to a point that Craig likes it, but I will still eat it also. I do put the caraway seeds in, though I crack them and don't use as much as the recipe.


Oh, last time I made it, my hands were really hurting from arthritis and working the salt into the cabbage was killing me. Bright idea, I used the head of the large metal meat mallet to work it in. Worked like a charm!


I also picked up a 2 quart apothacary jar from Hobby Lobby with the seal and locking ring. You can lock it down after the initial fermentation is done and you put it in the fridge, DEFINITELY not before.

Thank you Med.

My meat mallet has sideways heads. One flat and one spiked.

Maybe I can use my hand mixer on slow.

I am giving home made sauerkraut a try! It has been about three days- Way to salty. I rinsed the cabbage again in a colander, and put back in the jar. Wow- I did not know it was this easy to make. My dd loves kimchi -So we might try making that too.

Did you use the same ratio given in the recipe for the correct amount of cabbage? Mine has never been too salty.

Glad you gave it a try! I've made kimchi too, just more ingredients.

NO- My friend told me without ratio. I cut up cabbage, poured sea salt on top, massaged it in for about ten minutes. Stuffed in jar, leave the lid on loose. When you have time- Please send me ratio of how much salt. Also Kimchi Recipe.
Thank You

It's 1-1/2 Tablespoons to 3ish pound head of cabbage. Did you look at the link in my first post? You have to make sure the liquid covers the cabbage so it doesn't mold.

If you need additional brine, either to add or to put in a plastic bag to weigh the cabbage down, it's 1 teaspoon to 1 cup of water.

I'll have to find the kimchi recipe. It's been a while since I made it.

Dan, I made this 8 years ago when we were doing our around the world fun.
The link is broken for the recipe.

Thank You Medtran- I just poured the Sea Salt on top of the 2lb Cabbage. I rinsed it all off twice, it looks like it is in good condition now- Thanks for the tip.
