I made Sauerkraut Today!

I made red sauerkraut today.  It is so easy I don't know why people don't make it all the time!
It was simply done by slicing red cabbage thinly and adding it to a crock pot.  Little by little I layered cabbage with head of cabbage from the farm market in Garden City with 2 tablespoons of kosher salt.  I kept mashing it with my mothers old wooden potato ricer. I put a big bag of water on top to weight it down. It fit perfectly!
In a few days it will make sauerkraut, and should last a long time. It is supposed to be amazingly good for you.  Anyone ever made it before?

This is actually a whole head of cabbage!
