Which Sauerkraut Crock For You?

A sauerkraut crock in one form or another is essential if you wish to make your own sauerkraut.

Many people use wide mouth 1 gallon glass jars with excellent results.

However, there is nothing quite like a "real" fermentation crock in the cellar or pantry to make you feel you can ride out the hard times.

If you want to increase the amount of beneficial lactic acid bacteria that you take in then there is nothing quite as helpful as eating your own fermented cabbage made in your own fermentation pot. Of course, you can also make other pickled vegetables such as kimchi in it too.
