Our Sauerkraut is Done!!

Last night I skimmed the top of the sauerkraut and smelled it. I asked Joshua to smell it. He was not too sure about it. =) So, I tasted it. It was very sour, but it tasted OK. When Michael came in, I had him smell it. He said it smelled like sauerkraut. I had him taste it as he is the one who loves it the most. He said it was good. So, today I canned it. I got 4 quarts (one is a bit short) and 4 pints. I am thrilled it turned out.

pucker, pucker, saurkraut...I guess it's good, how long does it take to make?
I have a collection to Amazing Grace songs on my blog, I love that song, always makes me cry. I told my daughters they had to play it at my funeral, but not just once, you need to hear it several times to get the good feeling in your heart. I came to your blog from Tipper, who came from RedBarnCo blog, lovely lady who gave away a quilt.
Fall decorations???? Gee, I better get to it!! I'm always late, slow or never show up. Oh, well, I still love people, even if I'm odd and not what you expect. My neighbor was just diagnosed with breast cancer and I can't tell her, "Everything is going to be ok." because that's not what I believe. Death is not some horrible mistake but a natural turn of life on Earth we must ALL face.

I just saw you are in Ohio, I thought it was down South somewhere, you are very down to earth, God bless you. Wait, I learned a something new to say that suits me better, let me see if I can remember it...Blessings to you....that's it.

I absolutely LOVE the song by Allison Krauss, "Down to the River to Pray"..... wow whew. That touches my soul, what is the heritage of that song? I am Catholic and that is not a Gospel song I have heard. It takes me way back to where I have never been but in the movies.

This was my first time making it. Ginny was my advisor in doing it. It was in the crock for 2 weeks before it was declared done. =)

I have never done saurkraut but I really want to next year.

I don't eat it much but I have read it is REALLY REALLY good for you. So, I guess we need to add it into our meals here.
