Easy 5 Day Kraut

Do you love Kraut but hate waiting weeks before it tastes just the way you like it? Well this is the Kraut for you. I make my own yogurt and as most of you know, you can drip whey from yogurt. If you don't make your own then you can buy plain yogurt in the store. Just put it in a jelly bag or several layers of cheese cloth and place it over a bowl. Let it sit until you gather 1/2 cup of whey or more.

1:  Shred one large head of cabbage and a few carrots if you want to add them to your kraut.

2:  Sprinkle 2 tablespoons full of canning salt over the cabbage

3:  Pour 1/2 to 2/3 cups of whey over this and mix well until juices start to flow.

4:  Pack this in a gallon jar and cover in room
 temperature water.

5:  Take a freezer bag and fill with water and put in the jar to hold   your kraut under the brine.

6:  Let sit on your counter for 5 to 7 days.



  1. OMGosh !!!! This is soooo easy. I tried making kraut the NCHFP way- I tried the NCHFP way and it was gross......

    1. This is very good kraut. I make it and keep it in the refrigerator. I don't can it. When you heat kraut you lose the good probiotics.
