Spicy Georgian Cabbage

This cabbage is my husbands favorite. I got the recipe from his mother. Perfect side dish at a dinner table that can be refrigerated and lasts for a month.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large firm cabbage
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 3 dill strings with stems.
  • 2 spicy jalapeño sliced ( 1 if you don’t like much spice )
  • 2 beets cut in half and sliced
  • 3 celery sticks chopped.
  • 2 liters of water ( 8 cups )
  • 3 bay leafs
  • 5 table spoons of salt
  • 2-3 table spoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vinegar

Instructions:

  1. Find a small bucket or a medium size pot where everything can fit.
  2. Cut cabbage in half than slice each half into three. Do not peal the layers.
  3. Cut jalapeños in rings.
  4. Cut garlic in half’s.
  5. Chop celery
  6. Chop beets in half circles
  7. Arrange all the veggies in the bucket.
  8. In a pot , bring 2 liters of water to a boil.
  9. Add salt , sugar , dill , bay leaf , vinegar.
  10. Pour hot pickling liquid over all the veggies.
  11. Place a plate over the top and place something heavy over it. It needs some weight to make sure all the veggies all well emerged in all the liquid.
  12. Cover and set aside on the counter for 2-3 days. I like to mix it every day. Than remove the weight and refrigerate.
