4.  Scoop out 2 cups of shredded cabbage mixture and add to a blender.  Add add 1 cup of filtered water.  Blend and add more filtered water until it is a thick juice consistency, or brine.

5.  Add the blended mixture back into the cabbage mixture and mix well.

6.  Fill the glass container 2 inches from the top with the mixture.  Pack it down but leave 2″ of room for the veggies to expand.

7.  Roll up the whole cabbage leaves and place them on top to fill the remaining 2″ space.  This keeps the veggies down in the brine.  Clamp the lid down and place in about 70 degrees temp for a minimum of 3 days to a week.

8.  Refrigerate after fermentation and enjoy by itself or on salads.
