Ingredients

  • Cabbage - 1 kg

  • Carrots - 80 gr

The way of cooking

1. Finely chop the cabbage and put it in a deep dish. Grate the carrots in the same bowl. Choose fresh and firm cabbage.

2. Sprinkle the cabbage with salt and begin to mash it. This process should continue until the cabbage starts to release juice. If this does not happen, you will have to prepare a brine.

5. Add another layer and repeat until the jar is full. It is important to tamp the cabbage so that it is completely immersed in its own juice.

6. Put the jar in a deep container in case the juice starts to leak out.

7. Leave the cabbage in a warm and dark place for at least three days without a lid.

8. Several times a day, pierce the cabbage with a wooden stick to let the gas escape from the bottom. After this process, press on the cabbage with a wooden spatula so that it is covered with juice again.
