What does one do hours before heading off to Germany? Make a batch of homemade sauerkraut of course.
My grandparents always made homemade sauerkraut and I decided to give it a try. My late grandfather made this stomper for me years ago. My grandma gave me this crock to start with. I decided 3 gallons was good for my first attempt. Aaron likes the "3" on it.
It took 6 heads of cabbage to fill the 3 gallon crock. I got the cabbage at a farm stand in the Finger Lakes.
And now we wait.
