Cabbage salting according to all the rules always seemed to me a very difficult task, requiring special cooking skills. More than once I saw how housewives squeezed cabbage with hands then put some pressure on it, stringed it with long thin sticks and I understood that such magic was surely beyond my power. I simply used to buy sauerkraut until I was taught how to make sauerkraut in brine, when literally within three days you get tasty crispy sauerkraut. Perhaps it is not as good for health as cabbage cooked in traditional way. But when cooking it there is also a process of lactic acid fermentation, though speeded up one. Most often one cooks cabbage in such a way in a 3 liter jar, so the amount of ingredients is mentioned according to this ...
