Kraut!

It was such a gorgeous afternoon that I decided we needed to have happy hour in the driveway.

Happy Hour

I’ve had some wildly differing reviews about my dill pickle sauerkraut.  Myself, my assistant, my assistant’s husband, my sister, my mom, my gramma and a random guy from the internet absolutely loved it. Raved, couldn’t get enough, eyes rolled back in head, Oh My God, This Is So GOOD!

My hubby, my assets manager and my field service manager at work were all so disgusted by the smell that they couldn’t even imagine tasting it. My hubby will leave the room until it’s put away. The guys at work make us open the front and back door to air the office if we eat it at work.  I feel like the “smell hating” group would sing a different tune if they would just taste it!

Regardless, the first batch I made is almost gone, I gave away over half of it and try to eat a couple spoonfuls at least once a day. So, time to remake!

My own personal "cabbage crusher".  He's a good man, helping to make something he can't stand to be in the same room as!

I had another bowl that size that I was working on and then we combined them both, seasoned with dill and packed into the jar.

Also last night, while the kraut making was going on, I had a guy come over to pick up a scoby and some mother liquid to start his own kombucha.  I posted on Craigslist that I had spares and he ended up being my first “customer” and lives just 5 blocks away.  (He’s the internet stranger that taste tested my kraut and loved it!)

I have a second “customer” waiting for the next batch to turn over and then my assistant wants one after that so at least I won’t be throwing scobys in the garbage for awhile.
