Rinse the head of the cabbage, cut it into quarters or wedges. Using a slaw cutter, shredder or a sharp knife, slices the cabbage to about the thickness of a quarter. Peel and shred the carrots. Boil the caraway seeds for 1 minute (you can drink the tea).
Combine sliced cabbage, carrot, salt, and caraway seeds in a large bowl. Stir and knead till a brain will start to form. Place a heavy plate on the top of the cabbage. Place the jar (or bag) of water on top of the plate to weigh it down.
Allow 3-4 days for fermentation in room temperature. Uncover the crock to check the sauerkraut every day. Make holes with a wooden spoon to allow the gas to come out. If you like the sauerkraut more sour, keep it longer in room temperature. When the sauerkraut is ready, place it in a glass jar and keep it in the refrigerator.
