How to make Sauerkraut using the Mad Millie Fermenting Crock:

For those who love their Sauerkraut, we’ve got something special for you! We current have the Mad Millie Fermenting Crock in Stock and here is a fantastic way to use it!!

  1. Sterilize your hands and equipment before attempting to make the Sauerkraut.
  2. With sterilized hands, chop up/slice the cabbage into fine pieces.
  3. Transfer the chopped pieces into a clean and sterile bowl and add salt.
  4. Gently kneed the cabbage in order to mix the salt in properly – you’ll notice all the juice (brine) that will separate from the cabbage while doing this.
  5. Take the cabbage with clean, sterile hands and squash together making tight balls of cabbage, and place in the Fermenting Crock.
  6. Once you have completed this step, pour the brine on top of the cabbage within the fermenting crock.
  7. Before you place the lid, pour a little bit of water on the sides of the top of the crock so that a water seal will form. This will cause the gas to escape but none to enter. Water does evaporate so make sure you keep a close eye on it and top up where necessary.
  8. Seal the lid and leave to ferment for 7 days.
  9. After 7 days, open the lid, taste and if it isn’t salty enough, leave for a further two weeks to ferment. It should change in taste as well as in colour.
  10. After you are satisfied with the taste and colour, transfer into clean, sterile jars and refrigerate.
  11. Serve and enjoy!!
