Making our own home chocrut
-We can use exclusively white cabbage,but also what we can do with red cabbage and all kinds of hard vegetables cauliflower,neighbor,carrot,celery, onion etc.
If we decide to recommend various types of vegetables containing the mixture between the 25 ó 50 percent of white cabbage and red cabbage.
These mixtures of fermented vegetables are called picles.
As containers for fermentation can use a small barrel unvarnished,a container clay is either varnished or simply a glass jar with seal(no thread).
Do not use metal utensils or aluminum.
We recommend to house the glass container to recommend chocrut classic smooth leaf cabbages.
We can use as condiments peppercorns,hojas de laurel,juniper berries etc.
