Pickled Red Cabbage
Added by Freya on 10 November 2010
1 firm red cabbage (2 and a half to 3 lbs in weight)
half a pound of coarse salt
three quarters to a pint of spiced vinegar
(notes not included, but this can be made by simmering your chosen spices in the vinegar for around 5 minutes and then straining prior to use)
Discard any discoloured outer leaves and hard stem, and then cut cabbage into fine shreds.
Put layers of shredded cabbage and salt into a large bowl finishing with a layer of salt.
Leave for 24 hours.
Rinse salt off well with cold water and then drain thoroughly.
Pack into jars to within 1 inch of the top, cover with cold spiced vinegar to within half an inch of the top.
Seal and store for at least one week before using.
Use within 2 or 3 months or the crispness will be lost if left for longer.
