"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
This recipe for Sauerkraut, by LuVern Jones, is from The Jones Family Cookbook ,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help

Shred or chop heads of cabbage as desired. Pack (not too tightly) in clean quart jars. Add salt, sugar, and vinegar to each quart. Fill each jar with cold water and seal without heating. The screw tops will likely prove more satisfactory than the lids with rings. Store in basement or a simular cool place.
