|Putting the sauerkraut into the jar|
The sauerkraut does have a slight spiced edge to it, but mostly the tang of the cabbage and lactofermentation covers that. It is really exciting when you get a juniper berry, which bursts with flavor and really pows you in the jaw. But that is going to be pretty rare when there are 6 berries in about a quart of sauerkraut.
Still, it is not bad. I can still eat it and get all that healthy action going on. I may try separating half of the sauerkraut and adding some additional spices at this late stage. Maybe another sprinkle of bashed caraway seeds and a few bay leaves will liven this sauerkraut up.
