Sauerkraut Making Demonstration

October 7, 2023 to October 8, 2023
Ross Farm Museum, New Ross

In earlier years, usually in November, families prepared for winter by putting up barrels of sauerkraut. This is a process in which cabbage is shredded, salted, and stomped in a barrel and then allowed to ferment for 4 - 6 weeks. This weekend staff will be making sauerkraut using tools that would have been needed to make enough for a family’s winter needs.
