Today was the day our cabbage looked mature enough for picking.

We've been thinking about trying sauerkraut this year.

You'll never be sorry. You might even wonder how you ever survived without sauerkraut all this time :)

With homemade sauerkraut, you won't be sorry. Try a bunch of different types (spices). It is sooo good, and good for you. NOTHING like the store stuff!

A couple interesting facts on homemade sauerkraut, a 4-6 oz serving has 10 Trillion beneficial bacteria in it. That means that a 2 oz serving has the same probiotic impact as a 100-count bottle of probiotic supplement pills!! Tastes good, saves you money, makes you healthier - what's not to like?
