How to make sauerkraut in cans so that it is crisp
Prepare the necessary ingredients on the list. Now be sure to remove some of the topmost leaves from the cabbage. If there are any spoiled places, then cut them with a knife. Wash the vegetable under the tap water. Then cut it into smaller pieces. Slice the cabbage. Peel carrots, grate them.
Now in a jar, alternating vegetables (cabbage, carrots) put them tightly. After each layer, press down vegetables. Repeat the procedure until the bank is full.
Now pour sugar and salt on top.
Water filter. Water the cabbage with carrots.
Leave it at room temperature, covered with gauze or a lid with holes (to drain the boiling water). Already on the second day, the water in the cabbage will change color, and it will be imperative to begin to pierce it daily with a wooden skewer or stick.
Sour cabbage for at least 3-5 days, poke it in the morning and evening with a stick.
