My second fermentation experiment: sauerkraut!

I used a few resources, including !

I didn't have a measuring scale, but one website said you can use some tricks:

1 tsp salt = 5g
500 mL volume container = holds ~500g of contents

Β· Β· 2 Β· 1 Β· 13

I think the 2nd trick is because 1mL of water is 1g of weight, and maybe that's also a good density estimate for most veggies?

@tty yes!! That's a good one :) If you find the scum forms at the top, add some mustard seeds or pepper corns.

@tty they seem to kill/stop fermentation a bit, but only locally, since they float to the top, they break down the slime that might build up at the surface.
