My Mom's Pickled Cabbage

My Mom's Pickled Cabbage is an amazing and healthy snack / appetizer / side dish that compliments many dishes. Not only is it delicious, but it is a natural way to increase the good enzymes in your digestive system since it contains probiotic bacteria. Especially after drinking alcohol, which destroys the good enzymes in your body, the pickled cabbage can help. I believe in eating the right food instead of taking medications. You can eat this pickled cabbage on a daily basis to maintain a healthy digestive system.

My Mom's Pickled Cabbage

Ingredients:

1 green cabbage, cut into pieces, about 12 or more

4 celery stalks with the leaves, cut into 3"-4"

1 red hot pepper

1 large carrot, cut into thin stripes

1 1/2 tablespoons nigella seeds

Marinade:

+On every cup of water add 1 teaspoon of salt, add as many cups of water as needed into the jar you are using.

+2 tablespoons white vinegar

Directions:

Take a large jar and fill with boiling water to cover. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then spill the water. The boiling water will sanitize the jar.  Next start filling the jar with the vegetables, salt water and vinegar. 

Close the lid tightly, and let it sit on the counter in a sunny spot for about 3-5 days. If the weather is warm, the cabbage will be ready quicker. After it's ready, store it in the fridge for a few weeks. It will probably get eaten before....
