  • A Basic Sauerkraut Recipe

    Many years ago, a woman at my church told me I could make sauerkraut in jars. That was a new idea and I was intrigued by it. I love sauerkraut, and I thought I couldn't make it at home because I didn't have a cellar. But every attempt to make it turned out bad. It wasn't until I discovered Fermentools, and the instructions here, that I successfully created my first batch of lacto-fermented sauerkraut. If you want just a basic sauerkraut recipe, here it is--done the right way.

But the fears caused by my prior failed attempts were real. In this post, Michelle discusses those fears and helps you to see why they are unfounded.
