Sauerkraut German Style

11/05/2017 – Used a whole head of white cabbage from Hong Kong Market. Cored and shredded with the new slicer to have 2,215 gm.  Mixed in 31.5 gm Morton’s canning/pickling salt or 1.4%.


  • 22 juniper berries
  • 1 T heaping caraway seeds
  • 1 T + 1 teaspoon brown mustard seeds

Hammered the mixture with the metal meat mallet and packed it into the jars with the handle of the mallet. There was enough to fill a 1/2 gallon jar full plus a scant 1 qt jar and neither needed brine to cover as it made enough. Installed an airlock and the jars into the guest restroom.

12/1/2017- Forgot to crush the seeds as needed due to my colin pockets. Tasted very good with a hint of the mustard as desired.
