    We were discussing the joys of pickled red cabbage in a thread recently...so for my fellow brassica fanciers....the shredded, salted red loveliness having its juices drawn before pickling tomorrow :cool:

    They look nice. I have some pork chops that would go nicely with one of those. [​IMG]

    They look nice, too. I was thinking of it as a cooked vegetable, the pickled 'squeaks' on my teeth as I chew it.

    Plenty of beef left over from dinner so I can feel a late night supper calling for beef and a mix of pickles......toasted pita bread stuffed with beef and pickles in about half an hour :)

    Wow, they are really fine lookin cabbages there my friend. Are they wet, why so shiny. Believe it or not, i've never seen a red cabbage in the flesh before. Seen em in jars pickled etc but never whole. How bad is that.

    Nope, totally dry. They have dull outer leaves, but the inner "head" really does look like that (when fresh off the stalk). They do look yummy - not like that boiled carp they served in school huh?

    Pickled red cabbage is great, but red cabbage stewed with apples, some vinegar, a clove or two, and some nutmeg, is out of this world. The longer you cook it, the better it gets.

    Is this the same as sauerkraut making? Or is that "drier" mix?

    Similar but you don't add vinegar in sauerkraut, you use lactic acid created in the process
