i love spending an entire day in the kitchen; putting up food, making jellies, sauces, and butters. there is a feeling of satisfaction that you get when you seal the jar and put it on the shelf.
now after having a child and a business; my to-do list seems to keep getting longer....and longer. those days where i can play in the kitchen are few and far between and i have been craving that satisfaction.
the other day i got this huge green cabbage from a local farm and thought that i would make some saurkraut. there was
article in the october issue of Martha Stewart Living that showed me all of the steps.
really- all you need is cabbage, salt, water, some jars, and then patience. it is a pretty simple and fascinating process, a perfect canning activity for kids!
i tested out a few variations in each of the jars. i made some plain, roasted jalapenos, garlic, and some apple varieties. just enough to get us through the winter months!
