Quick sauerkraut help needed!!!

I have 5 pounds of shredded cabbage in a bowl ready to go. I just grabbed the box of kosher salt, to find out ( to my displeasure) that it is practically empty

The recipe calls for 4 tbs of Kosher or Pickling salt per 5lbs of cabbage.

Looks like i only have about 2 tbs of kosher salt.

The recipe also says not to use table salt.

can I use 2 and 2 ( kosher / table)

Is there any specific reason not to use the table salt ??

Honestly, I dont have much choice, but just curious about the potential results.

Me and my cabbage are sitting here patiently awaiting a response.

If your "table salt" is non-iodized it will be ok....If not, it still will work, taste basically them same etc, but the product and liquids will be somewhat darker.

Have Fun!

Agreed. What makes it kosher is the lack of additives, and it is of course a coarser grind.
If it can't be fixed with chocolate... why bother?
