Making kraut.


The veins in the cabbage remind of the
coranary arteries in the heart.

The signs were in the head so it was time to
make some kraut.. I used two cabbage heads
today.. There are plenty more in the garden..
I also make kraut when the signs are in the
heart.

I cut the cabbage off of the head and place into
my large metal pan. We eat the left over cabbage
stalk..YUM.

Not quite ready..I will chop some more.. :)

Just the right texture. Now I pack the
cabbage tightly into my quart jars. I also add
1Tblsp. of vinegar,1tsp. of canning salt and finish
filling the jars with water..

I made 6 quarts today. I place them on a
towel and let them ferment and spew for
several days before I put them away.
I made a dish of slaw with the left over
cabbage..
