    Everyone around here processes their kraut in a pressure canner.

      That’s unfortunate! Processing sauerkraut destroys its good bacteria and its texture. I understand wanting something shelf-stable–I made a few quarts of pickles and canned them just in case we ran out of or somehow lost our pickles in cold storage (and we did–I accidentally turned the refrigerator they were in down and they froze)–but pressure canning seems like overkill. Pickled foods can be safely processed in a water bath.

    Thanks for these tips! I’ve been making sauerkraut for a while but it never turns out quite like I like.

    Hi! I drink the juice and don’t eat the cabbage. Does anybody know if instead of cutting up more cabbage and making a whole new batch of sauerkraut, can you just refill with new water to make more sauerkraut juice?
