1Maryann Posted January 13, 2013 Share Posted January 13, 2013 I started my first ever batch of sauerkraut last Monday. Today when I looked at it, there were what seemed to be two kinds of furry mold growing around the top. I used a recipe that called for saving the tough outer leaves and using them to cover the surface of the shredded cabbage and to use something to hold the leaves down, keeping all the kraut below the level of the liquid. It does say that mold may form and you can just remove it, but the black mold seemed to be growing in and on the cabbage leaves. I discarded them and made sure there was no more mold in the jars, and then I removed leaves from a head of cabbage I had in the fridge and recovered the kraut with those. Since I had both a furry white mold and a black, more slimy mold, do you think the kraut is still okay? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
