Cut the last of the spring cabbages that went in a little too late this year. Got about 10 solid heads that we're going to ferment into kraut. As WMAn has referenced several times, the essential book on the how to's and science behind fermentation is by Sandor Katz called The Art of Fermentation.

If you have any interest in fermenting food or drink, this is a must own!

I'll try to get pics to follow

I love me some Kimchi. I've wondered how turnip greens would turn out if you did them the same way. Think they would be too chewy?

-just ordered the book, btw.

It's is a good book. And if you are making fermented foods often, a Harsch pot is awesome. I love mine.
Poser, have you tried kimchi from the International farmers market? It's good stuff.

I got the 7.5 from Cabela's about two years ago. I've made lots of kraut and some awesome dill pickles too.

I made four jars of kimchi, and I have four heads of cabbage left to go. Some of the cabbage will be used for slaw and the rest for kraut.

I tried my kimchi out last night. The first jar was a dud; I'll let it age some more and try it again in a few months. I think my mistake was not spicing it enough. The intial spice mixture without cabbage tasted great, but now it's kind of bland.
