Has anyone actually made this? Is there anything I need to bear in mind. Hubby commented on our neighbours cabbages as they are huge and next thing he knows he is given this humongous cabbage and it is 31C outside so I had better think of doing something with it fast.Doh

Ooh yuk, fermented cabbage whether you leave it outside or make sauerkraut. I always wondered if it was the eating of this that made Germans such a dour nation?

Golly, Joanna, that's brave of you. I just had a fleeting search and found this.

From a 'German Grandma' Smile.
and the suggestion is that it has to ferment for upwards of 2 months !! Eeek

Cabbage soup to start followed by coleslaw and finish with sauted cabbage in butter and black pepper for the next 4 days?

They all grow cabbages that size, they probably don't understand why we don't Roll_Eyes. I think they all make pickled cabbage from it.

I was going to suggest the Korean kim chi (not sure of the spelling) which I think is long fermented, possibly outdoors, adored by Koreans.

Just don't invite me to have any! I hope I never meet it again...

Wave We used to buy sauerkraut in jars and my dad would make bigos with it, adding along with other things Polish sausage.  It made a delicious stew and my mouth is watering just thinking of it.  Talk about nostalgia.Magic   Magic   Magic

My daughter tells me she went on a 'fermentation course' last week. I have to say, it doesn't appeal!

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/
