Sunrise in the east
Rainstorms coming from the west
What to do on a rainy day? Kraut-making time in the kitchen!
Chop the cabbage, add some sea salt, and pound it well.
You'll know you're done when your arm wants to fall off.
Put it in a jar or crock, add some dill or caraway seeds, cover it to keep out anything else looking for a home (but not so tightly that the top blows off!) and let it work it's magic for four days on the counter top. Then, to the fridge for at least a month before you taste it.
Here it is, the first of many pints to come.
