That stuff will last forever. No need to freeze it.

You spelled it correctly.

It will keep for a very long time in the fridge. after all, it's pickled. I've never frozen it. What have you got to lose, freeze some and see what happens.

I have gone months and months without any problem. Sauerkraut can do 6 weeks with one arm tied behind its back.

You can get saurerkraut in all sizes to suit your needs. I like sauerekraut on my hot dogs so I buy a tiny can and use it in two sittings.

I buy the kind in a jar which has a lid. The smell stays contained that way and when you open it the kraut will smell the same 6 months later as the day you bought it.

I actually buy my sauerkraut from a store that only sells pickled things ( mushroos, eggplant, cukes, eggs, peppers and cabbage ...) and she alsways tells me that i can freeze it for 6 months. i never tried it, but i assume she knows what she is talking about since she is in the business.

I go once a month and buy about $20 of pickled anything and everything. There is another place in New York City, called ' just pickles'. All it is , is a closet sized store front, with many large pickle barrels in front of it. Its somewhere near the Empire State Building.

just a note*** thats my two kids and the guy who works at the store***

I also think the glass jar is the way to go I also think the jarred kraut tastes better. Every so often I like like to eat it straight out of the jar cold, it is really tasty that way. We should eat more kraut any way.

Same here. I have a jar in the fridge right now. I can eat it right out of the jar, too.

I like the bag too with added caraway seeds, does keep along time, we like it with pork steak too - yum. Hubby is low sodium now, so I don't buy it very much just for me.

Hey that's New York for you. Nothimg like this here, nothing even close.

Suzz, I'll give you the recipe to make some. The only thing it is much milder than an American kind. Mosy Americans i know do not like it.
