Re: Making Sauerkraut
I got the "Old Style" large. If I were getting another one, I'd get the jumbo. I thought I got the biggest one, but I didn't. Some of the cabbages that I used weighed 7 lb each and a quarter cut cabbage wouldn't fit on the mandoline. Mine came with 3 blades that would be used for dicing vegetables. I tried the largest one and it still cut the cabbage too small. Just use it without one of the drop in blades and it cuts the cabbage perfectly, set to the widest setting. The safest and actually the fastest way I found to cut it was to hold/push down on the cabbage with the palm of my hand and slide it back and forth across the blade. That also kept my fingers out of the way. Having said that, I will have a cut proof glove before I make more in the late fall.
The more I learn about bees, the less I know.
