Fermented Veggies are so good for you. The original recipe came from Vegetarian Times, but I added a few things and made this my own recipe. It's very simple to make and tastes great! You can add more ground chili to this if you like it hot and spicy! This will sour as it ages so if you find it too tart you can always add it to Kimchi Stew that can be found at www.vegetariantimes.com
Put the water in a non-reactive bowl, like a crock or glass bowl. Add the salt and stir it around, then add the cabbage and stir it around to coat. You can also use rubber gloves and toss this mixture, it works great.
Leave this overnight and then drain in a plastic seive. I rinsed mine slightly to get some of the salt off. Clean out the bowl you used to soak the cabbage and put the cabbage back into it.
Add all the other ingredients and toss using your rubber gloves and then pack it as tight as you can into a quart canning jar. I got the whole thing into the jar by pressing down with each addition. It should be watery on the top when you're done.
Seal the jar with the lid and leave it 2-3 days before serving. Flip the jar up side down occasionally to ensure the liquid moves from top to bottom and back again. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
