Ingredients

  • 1 cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 1 Tbsp caraway seeds
  • 2 Tbsps sea salt
  • ½ cup whey*

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and pound to release the juices. This takes a little work and some patience.
  2. Spoon into a mason jar and using the pounder press down until juices come to the top of the cabbage and cover it. Make sure you get a good centimetre of juices sitting above the cabbage otherwise mould grows, ruining the whole lot.
  3. Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days before refrigerating.

* To make whey: Purchase some good quality plain yoghurt (with active live cultures). Using a washed and unbleached piece of cloth, scoop out the yoghurt, tie it and hang it up to drip. The strained liquid is the whey. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator until needed.
