So a co-worker of TMOTH's gave us two heads of cabbage a while back. Don't ask.
I managed to use up one over the course of a couple of weeks, but that second cabbage was threatening to take up permanent residence in the fridge. I was stumped.
While perusing Simply in Season I came across the "Simple Homemade Sauerkraut" recipe and thought, why not?
So I sliced some cabbage...
And mixed it with some salt and spices.
Then I attempted to cram eight-plus cups of cabbage into a quart jar.
Success! I added some salted water to top it off...
And then placed it in an out-of-the way space on the cabinet to start doing it magic fermentation thing.
Itwo weeks or so we'll know if we made sauerkraut.
I guess I have until then to try to convince the girls that they might actually like sauerkraut.
