Yes, you can certainly freeze sauerkraut.  Freezing will stop the fermentation process, and may affect the flavor a little bit.  Just be sure it's in an air-tight plastic bag or container with no room for extra air inside (press out the air as you seal the bag or the container).  It should last several months.  Best of luck to you!

I used to make sauerkraut in a big crock. My mother liked to can it but I liked it frozen better. The heat of canning makes it go soft. But freezing it keeps it very fresh.

No reason why you could not freeze it. It is only cabbage and salt.

Have a good day

Never froze it raw but I think its to wet it would become an icicle and mush when you defrosted.You never buy frozen cabbage anywhere. But if its prepared with as stuffed cabbage than you can. I know boiled potatoes can't be frozen. but fried can.. go figure..

Yes it can. Uncooked (from a jar or can) and already cooked leftovers. I have done it many times.
