Sauerkraut is simple to make at home and the part that requires attention is handled by a simple, made in the USA, effective product called the GoFerment lid. I am terrible at tasks that require long-term attention. Making bread from scratch, minding candy as it cooks to a certain temperature, rinsing sprouts (daily? weekly? twice daily? hourly? ugh!), and the like are all failures for me. This device caught my attention because it eliminates the burping and paying attention during the week the produce ferments on the counter.
Get a cabbage, a mason jar, and a GoFerment lid (or an old fashioned crock if you have the attention that I lack) and a little salt and read on, Wildflowers!
