easy sauerkraut:

i received this recipe from my friend Shauni and her mother after i failed multiple times doing it the traditional way in a crock. and let me tell you: it is GOOD sauerkraut. thank you ladies!!
-chop/shred the cabbage- 
-sterilize your jars, rings, and lids in boiling water- 
-add these things to the bottom of your hot jar - since i used pint jars and not quarts i adjusted the quantity accordingly- 
-pack your hot jars tightly with the cabbage and fill with boiling water - leaving about 1/4"-3/16" headspace- 
-close up with hot lids and rings and store in a dry, dark space. the lids will contintue popping up and down as the cabbage turns into kraut. enjoy-
