One crock, shredded cabbage, and 2 teaspoon of sea salt per pound of cabbage.
Pack and layer cabbage with salt in between layers.
Cover cabbage with a garbage bag filled with 2 gallons of water (for the airtight seal) and wait 6 weeks.
Skim off top rot and eat/can.

It sounds gross but it doesn't get any better than homemade kraut. It's good for your stomach...kind of like yogurt is.

The smell of kraut when I was a kid would draw an automatic dry heave.... Now I love to eat it lol...

Butchered my buck today. My first batch of canned chunks. Just added a touch of water and a bullion cube. My second batch is finishing up soon. Does anybody do any special seasonings like a cajun or anything different that they would like to share, as I plan on doing some more in a couple weeks after Christmas

I highly recommend using "Better than Boullion" beef base instead of cubes. much better flavor, and since it is a paste you can actually measure it out. I use it canning both venison shanks and squirrel. 1/2tsp per pint, 1tsp per quart instead of salt. I never add anything else to the jars. I've tried adding garlic, onion, barbeque sauces and other concoctions, but it never once turned out like I imagined. meat and broth in a jar is a blank canvas. open jar and get creative.
