Looking for a couple of recipes

I searched but didn't find what I was looking for. Last year someone here talked about some pink kraut they had made from red cabbage and I think some apples and it sounded divine. I would like that recipe if the original poster or anyone else would like to share again.

Also, I always make some plain sour pickles that taste the closest to what my grandmother used to do. It is basically cider vinegar, dry mustard, salt, sugar and some sort of crisper. The original recipe calls for alum but I now use pickle fresh. I keep them in the fridge as there were no canning instructions at the time. If I could find the original recipe and give measurements, I was hoping someone could tell me if I could can them or not. I use mostly vinegar since I like them pretty stout.

On the pickles it would depend on the ratio of water to vinegar used and the mustard powder. It has a few restrictions associated with it.

The kraut was John's and is in with his 'gloves' posts. I see if I can pull it up for you. It is basically just red cabbage used instead of green in the standard kraut recipe. You can add diced apples to any kraut recipe.

Here you go just scroll down through the recipes to it.

Oh, thanks a bunch! I'm actually going to try some of his other recipes as well.
