Making our own sauerkraut Soooo Fun!

We didn’t grow any cabbage this year, although a really nice person from our church had some extra to give and offered us some. Every Sunday after the harvest season people would bring their extra veggies and fruit to church and share with everyone. It is so nice to see that happening in this day and age. One thing I have to say about where we are living are how kind people are…and giving. It is contagious!!! This is one thing I do not mind contracting LOL.

So here are some beginning pics of the sauerkraut process…kinda fun. Of course you know Jim did most of the real work…we (Stanley & I) were just posing ….

Cabbage...this is what we are keeping it in...It was a messy job initially. But once you get it shredded you just have to keep it in a dark place with a weight on it until it is ready.

Jim hands are going so fast...look how blurry they are...This blade was lent to us by the same gentleman who gave us cabbage. He said to be careful…the blade was VERY sharp!! Have you ever tasted the core of a cabbage? It is very spicy…kinda burns your mouth. It was really yummy. We all took turns eating the cores.


About my clothes...just felt a little hippie today...I liked it until I looked at the pictures..Yikes!! LOL

This last one is Dad & Stanley…slicing together. It was a little hard to hold the slicer and push the cabbage at the same time.

He is soooo flipping cute!!!I counted all the fingers when he was finished…whew!! Still has 10 total!!

Now we wait, and wait, and wait….pretty long process. I am so looking forward to the end where we get to eat it. If I post after that…you will know…WE LIVED…Whahahahha

Although we may look a little like this guy after we do eat the krout!!

Oh and check out Joe-E…this is what he was doing the whole time….

Goofy, Lazy Dog... Shut up Joe!!
