Last summer I showed you how to make Kraut the old time way-in a crock. It was only after I met The Deer Hunter that I learned how to use a crock for pickling. Granny doesn't use one-she makes her Kraut in the jar. Pap and Granny have been making Kraut this week-so I went and watched.
Granny also said she thought the sun made the Kraut work faster. I said "Does a jar ever explode?" Granny said "Why Lord no it may run out some but it won't explode." Granny's a worrier-after a few minutes she said "Well if it ever did explode it wouldn't hurt nothing outside no way."
Have you ever made Kraut in the jar?
