Choosing the Best Equipment for Making Sauerkraut

In the past sauerkraut was made in wooden casks. Loosely fitted covers allowed air to be present inside and that allowed mold to grow. Such a process required regular maintenance: accumulating foam and molds had to be scooped up and discarded. Weights, cloth and cabbage leaves had to be regularly washed. Water channel clay crocks like German Hirsch or Polish crocks made the process relatively maintenance free. There also are fermenting glass jars and buckets with air locks, which are inexpensive, yet produce the same quality sauerkraut as the bigger and more expensive clay crocks.

A perfect sauerkraut can be made every time. Right fermentation temperature, proper amount of salt, fine shredding, packing and immersing cabbage in its own juice, these are basic steps. Selecting right equipment will make production easier to control.
