Capture.JPG The current batch I made was from the red cabbage I grew in the garden, 2 kinds, I got 6 nice heads from it.
6 smallish heads of cabbage 2 Table Spoons of Sea Salt (these were small heads) BUT! I use no more than 3 when using big heads
I didnt add carrots this time, just the cabbage, I let it ferment for all of Sept. & Oct.

Wash the carrots and the jar
Cut up the carrots, peel the ginger
Fit them in the jar, you don't want the carrots to be taller than the water level,

Then I dissolve 1/2 tsp of salt in my measuring cup or a glass of water, I then an other 1/2 tsp
I filled the glass and poured it over the carrots then added more water until the tops of the carrots were covered,
I used a coffee filter and rubber band to cover it
12/3
carrots are done!

I’m a very practical wine drinker…when I do. Layer Cake is the label. I don’t partake very often but cant bear to watch a bottle go to waste🥰

I only have one jar I started last weekend. I love your crock!!❤️ I was going to order one, but decided to start with lids that work on my canning jars with a glass weight that fits int he jar. If all goes well there might be a kraut crock under the tree for Christmas!

I cut my cabbage in the food processor for ease and the jar is in the pantry…dark and cool. I think I used too much salt. I had close to 5 pounds of cabbage and used just shy of 3 T. It looks like it is making progress.

Does the red cabbage take on a different flavor?? I am heading to the market and may pick up some red to try today.

Just finished my coffee and venturing out. Have a wonderful day everyone.

red cabbage contains 10x more vitamins, cancer-fighting flavonoids

Red cabbage is a more nutrient dense food,
It tastes the same to me
