Fermenting sauerkraut

In the Kitchen

This will be a short post this week.  It has been a busy week but I did manage to FINALLY start some sauerkraut fermenting!  I have been wanting to do this for months and just never got around to it.

If you click on the picture above, it should take you to the recipe I used but it is pretty easy...cabbage and salt!  Months ago, I had supported a Kickstarter for Pickle Pipe - a silicone based airlock that can be used to ferment vegetables and fruits.  

My Pickle Pipe finally came and so I have no excuses to start my fermenting!  Finger's crossed...my sour dough died!  I am going to order some more starter.


I had mentioned that my New's Years Resolution is to declutter a "ton" of stuff from our house.  I had a mini-goal to get rid of 200 lbs in January...you know, to really get off to a great start!  It was tough but I did it!  Basically, I spent the month of January working on the kitchen and anything food related.  Now, I have moved on to the laundry room which is also a storage area with LOTS of those rubbermaid tubs...ugh!  I am slowing going through them one-by-one...these tubs moved to this rental house with us over 4 years ago.  I can count on one hand the number of times I have had to open them to look for something.  So, hopefully, some major decluttering happening in the laundry/storage area in February!

Shameless plug warning...

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!
