<<-- This is me with my 3rd youngest sister. (Clearly I'm the small-boned one of the bunch).
There was plenty of "accidently vegan" yumminess for me too! Tons of fresh garden produce, salad and stuffed mushrooms. Yum!
OK. Then the fun part! We stomp the cabbage down in the crock (with very clean bare feet, seriously!!) until it gets very juicy.
All the leftover cabbage leaves are then ceremoniously fed to the neighbor's cows. This is as much a tradition for all of us as the actual sauerkraut-making, I swear. The cows LOVE the cabbage.
