Directions:
Prepare the brine: Mix water with salt, sugar, peppercorns and bay leaves. Heat on stove until water boils, then remove from heat to cool and set aside. Shred the cabbage and grate carrots. Mix together. In your 1 gallon/3 liter jar, pour 4 cups/1 liter of the brine into the jar. Tightly pack the cabbage unto the jar all the way to the top. Add more brine if needed to cover the cabbage. To ferment: Cover the jar with a lid with a hole or folded sterile gauze. Put the jar on a plate as the brine overflows during fermentation. Leave jar in a warm place for 3 days. Everyday, pierce the cabbage with a wooden stick to let out the gas. When sauerkraut is ready, close the lid tightly and put in the refrigerator.
