The amount you make would depend on how much you like kraut I suppose. Yesterday Dad said when we were all living at home they made around 40-50 quarts a year. Now with just the two of them there they make 20-30 quarts so there is enough to share with us all at the family dinners on Sunday.
Missy had 6 basketball sized cabbages yesterday and that was 50 quarts of kraut. My other sister Opal has 5 of the same size that still needs worked up next week. We are going to have kraut coming out our eyeballs and I am excited. I LOVE it!
With that said, if you don't have a large family, and don't love kraut... you wouldn't want to make 6 basketball sized cabbages into kraut. Use your own judgement on how many you need.
Here we have the cabbages.
