    I’m confused. It says to drain off the water used to shred the cabbage, then it says to make sure the cabbage is submerged "in the water mixture" — what water mixture?

    Making it tonight…. another recipe says 3-10 days for fermentation. We’ll see how it goes.

    This sounded fun up until "remove scum off top" hahaha

    I have made sauerkraut for years, but the old-fashioned way, hand-shredding. When you put the salted cabbage in the crock, press it down. Water will come out. Place a plate and rock on top of the cabbage to keep it under the water and draw more out.

    It’s so easy. I’ve found here in Florida that it doesn’t take the whole six weeks so ferment it to taste. Temperatures vary so fermentation times will vary as well. Make sure the salt water stays above the cabbage and you have it made.
