Fun with kraut!

I forgot to post this before now.

Last Sunday, I made 15lbs of sauerkraut.

First I cut the cabbages with this:

Then I added 5 tablespoons of pickling salt and 1 tsp of nigari and some starter juice from some other fermented vegetables and put it in this:

It has been happily bubbling away since then. It should be ready in about 4 weeks.

Nee Hao!

I'm going to start studying Chinese again soon. I'm going to use the new digital camera to make a slide show of the radicals to get started again. It drives me nuts to be able to only identify one or two radicals in Chinese writing on tv or restaurants. I know that they are talking about "bean", "meat", "public", but not any of the real message.
