To Top


Easy to make.


  • cabbage
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. pickling salt


Put shredded cabbage in sterilized quart jar. Add a scant 1 1/2 tablespoon of pickling salt. Fill jar to 1/4 inch of top with cold water. Set aside on newspaper for 3 to 4 days.


After fermentation stops, wash outside of jars and place in hot water bath for 15 minutes, counting from the time you first set jars in actively boiling water.

My mom used to put a few tablespoons of brown sugar in it. Or you could put a couple of teaspoons of whole fennel seed as well. (05/25/2010)

In a baking dish (I put Pam in the dish first), layer chicken, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, Swiss cheese to cover. Bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour.

Enjoy. It's so good and easy. (05/26/2010)

We add caraway seeds to sauerkraut. It also aids in the digestion. (05/26/2010)

Here's one to "doctor up" sauerkraut. Good for hot dogs or sausages.

Rinse sauerkraut. Put in pot with water to level of kraut. Add caraway. Simmer 20" or until tender and 1/2 of liquid is absorbed. Heat fat in skillet, saute onion til golden. Stir in flour and cook til brown. Add to kraut with pepper and simmer another 20". Can add about 2 Table. brown sugar if you want to cut the "sour" taste. (05/26/2010)

Sauerkraut Salad

Excellent for summer side dish: Sauerkraut Salad

Blend oil, water, vinegar and sugar. Arrange sauerkraut, peppers and pimento in a bowl, place onion rings on top. Pour dressing over. Cover, refrigerate for several hours. Keeps for weeks. My Mother's recipe (05/26/2010)

I just drain it and add more water, a teaspoon sugar, and some bacon drippings. It really improves the taste and is not so sour. My 94 year old mother that passed away 8 years ago, always made sauerkraut this way. You don't have to use a lot of bacon drippings, just enough to add to the taste.

Without draining the sauerkraut, I add a small can of tomato sauce. It cuts some of the sourness. (11/23/2010)
