Canning Cabbage

A few years ago my husband and I had a sauerkraut competition.  I made some my way, in an old fashioned crock and he made some his way by putting it in a jar and processing it.  We ended up with old fashioned sauerkraut like Grandma’s and some amazing canned cabbage!  This is the recipe that resulted in the amazingly good canned cabbage.

When you’re getting things together, keep in mind 1 head of cabbage averages 3 quarts of canned cabbage.

Shred the cabbage and pack the sterile jars full, up to the neck, leaving 1 inch of head space. Use a wooden spoon to reallly pack the jars.


Add to each jar 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon canning salt, and 1 teaspoon of vinegar.


Fill each jar with boiling water up to the neck.  Place hot lids, rings and tighten.


Waterbath 20 mins.  This stuff is great fried, added to soup or simply warmed up.  Enjoy!
