I found a 4L Costco pickle jar I was saving (with no purpose in mind) and thought I would try using it to make a batch of sauerkraut.  I found working with this large jar to be much easier then working with multiple 1L wide-mouth mason jars; I could get my hand into it to press down the kraut instead of relying on "tappers".

The other new idea I tried was half-filling a zip-lock bag with water a as weight.  Wasn't quite as heavy as it needed to be, but it definitely helped to keep the kraut submerged in the brine at all times.

Definitely a successful experiment!

Leave a banknote--either a real or a photocopied one--in front of a mirror, so you can see its reflection.
More money will begin to flow towards you as a consequence.
