    For those who don't want to mix units, the 10g salt per 1lb cabbage works out to 2.2% salt by weight, but you can simplify to be more-or-less 2.25% I suppose. So long as you're in that ballpark.

    In Germany i dont think anyone eats Sauerkraut cold, it just doesn't taste good
    as an alternative if you really think it is much healthier to eat it as it is mix it with Hot Potatoe Mash and pieces of Bacon

    more vitamin C than any other food. the fermentation process produces it. 900mg per serving!! an orange is like 40mg or so.

    My father's recipe for sauerkraut includes a baseball bat and the words "beat it until it sounds sucky."

    Hated making this as a kid we'd have to shred the cabbage over the container on an old fashioned grater. We have to stop every other cabbage and add salt and pound it down. About 14 cabbages each year and holy crap it would make the house stink. But I'll admit we'd eat it every fall and winter and never end up sick during those months.

    Folks, don't use your hands. Your skin, in particular your hands, are verdant petri dishes for all sorts of microorganisms. You want Lactobacillus, and exclusively Lactobacillus. It's already on the cabbage - you don't need to introduce anything else. Use a wooden spoon (still subject to infection, but far less so than your dirty hands).
