Tuesday night I opened up my crock of sauerkraut and boy did it stink (in a good sauerkraut sort of way). I got five quarts when I canned it. I wanted to do pints, but Brian said bigger was better and that way we would have them for BBQs and when we have company over. I am really please at how pretty they look, but I was a little disappointed that I never got to hear the "pop" of the lids sealing. I guess with some of the new lids that just doesn't happen much any more. At least I know that they did seal and it sure will taste good on some brats or sausages.
