The Cabbage: Part 2

10lbs of sauerkraut.

Blanched and draining the second head of cabbage. Gonna freeze these for later. MUCH LATER! I am so over cabbage right now. TOO MUCH CABBAGE!

My first attempt at kimchi.

Just rocking out to The Doors and The Who whilst chopping cabbage, like ya do...

 This is what happens when you can't remember how big your sauerkraut crock really is (Max capacity UNSALTED is 10 lbs. For future ref.) For just $3 I purchased two heads of cabbage. Reasonable, right? EXCEPT, these two heads were MONSTER sized and I have 18 lbs 6 oz of cabbage.

I got the 'kraut going.  MY kraut is special. I also add in bay leaf and black pepper. It is quite popular with the fam. Favorite use is w/kolbasz.

I will also be making kimchee. Not, nine pounds of it, but kimchee none the less. That will be a separate adventure.


What one has for lunch when one still has 9lbs of cabbage with which to deal.
