  • Can you Freeze fresh sauerkraut?

    I'm going to a church Octoberfest where they sell fresh sauerkraut. It doesn't cost much, and I was wondering if I could freeze it to use later in soups....  I think I'd just put it in freezer bags.

    Thanks for any help.

    i use to make kraut & can it. if I didn't use the entire content of the jar I placed it in a ziplock bag & froze it. kraut is a fermented food so don't see any reason why you can't freeze it. It can't hurt the flavor cause it's already been fermented.

    Would it be better to freeze with liquid or not?

    I freeze it all the time with the liquid.  We like stronger tasting kraut, so I don't drain when I cook it.

    I make my own crock sauerkraut every year and I always freeze it. It tastes really fresh done that way. I freeze the liquid with it but I do drain mine before cooking with it. Too salty for me.

    Thanks for everyons's help. Now I'm looking forward to "stocking up" at the Octoberfest!

    They sell it really cheap and my husband loves it, now I can use it in soups and let him have some too!
