sauerkraut, 9 days in
see the bubbles?
We are 9 days into the saurkraut experiment and I am intrigued - the smell is contained closely in the area of the jar (as in, you must stick your nose right up to it), there has been no scum to be skimmed, and there are still bubbles. I think we are looking good. There was some drama midweek where the cabbage leaf I placed on top to keep the kraut down began to ever-so-slightly mold (shhhhh, it never hit the liquid!) but I quickly replaced that with parchment paper and am hoping for the best.
