(it’s good for your BELLAY!!)

Ingredients:

1 head cabbage (white or red, or half of each)
1 TB whole caraway seeds
1 TB sea salt
3 TB grated fresh ginger (optional)
2 large grated fresh carrots (optional)

Directions:

Remove large outer leaves from cabbage, set aside.

Shred cabbage, then dice to make pieces somewhat uniform

In large bowl, add cabbage, caraway seeds, sea salt , ginger and carrots.

Massage, all together with your hands for 5 or so minutes, as you do this, natural Juices will be released.

Place contents into a wide mouth jar and continue pressing down with wooden spoon until juices rise to the top covering the cabbage blend. Leave at least 2-3 inches of space at the top of the jar.

Cover mixture with whole cabbage leaves on top (inside the jar) ensuring that it is airtight. Seal jar firmly.

Cover jar with a towel and store at room temperature, in a dark spot for 3-5 days, then you can put in the refrigerator.

It is ready to eat after this time, but note that the flavors, and pro biotic properties improve with time.
