Crikey ..... how funny is my Mum? Not to mention Shane!! You'd think they were the only people in the whole world that had EVER made sauerkraut from scratch. Its been going on for almost a week now. They made it last Saturday and EVERY day Mum has taken pictures and sent Shane a text at work to show him the photo and tell him how the Kraut was going. She even tried to take a video to show him the bubbles coming up while it was fermenting. She failed miserably at that one. She couldn't hold the camera still and poke the kraut at the same time. Weird, aye?? But then my Mum is hopeless in the kitchen so if she has a success she does get a bit excited and it seems this was a success. She reckons it tastes just like in Germany and she should know cause she sure ate a whole heap of it while she was over there. We are going to have a big German night, maybe on halloween night, and have PORK (OMD I love that stuff), German sausages, The Kraut Mum and Shane made but all fancied up with bacon and stuff, knodel, German potatoe salad, mustard, bread rolls, brezels, a BIG German salad AND here's the bad part ... we will have to sit through endless holiday photos. Well it all sounds good except for the photo bit. Mum couldn't believe all the comments you blokes made when she told you she had made sauerkraut so if you want to know more just leave a comment and she'll make another batch and talk you through the process WITH PICTURES in one of MY blogs. She wants to try red cabbage next. She had great fun making it and it WAS real easy. Just as well, aye, with her limited capabilities? Personally I think this picture should be enough for you. I don't think Mum should take over my blog to do more on HER sauerkraut but if, and only if, you want more, I'll be very magnanimous (big word, aye??) and allow it JUST ONE MORE TIME. Over to you blokes!!
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
