Cover the jar's opening with cabbage leaves, placing a weight on top of them. Allow mixture to ferment 2-3 days. Hot-N-Spicy Kim Chee Balances K, aggravates P, slightly unbalances V All Seasons, best Winter 1 head green or red cabbage, juiced 1 head green or red cabbage, chopped 5 carrots, juiced 5 carrots, chopped Vi cup fresh ginger, grated l Tbs cumin seed l tsp dried red pepper, ground 1 tsp mellow miso Vi tsp cayenne 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped Blend the carrot juice, cumin, cayenne, red pepper, and miso. Mix all ingredients together by hand and place in jar.
Serve on individual cabbage leaves. Carrot Slaw Balances P and K, unbalances V Summer l cup green cabbage, shredded l cup purple cabbage, shredded 1 cup carrots, grated 3 Tbs raw apple cider vinegar 2 dates, pitted Blend the apple cider vinegar and the dates, adding a small amount of water if necessary. Toss the vegetables in this dressing. Serve. Remarks: The carrots and the apple cider vinegar help to balance V, but are best taken in small amounts by V.
Remove the outer cabbage leaves and save them to put on top of the sauerkraut mix later. Wash and clean other veggies. 5. Cut cabbage and veggies in small pieces to fit into the Champion Juicer or whatever appliance or technique one uses to crush and cut up vegetables. Whether using the Champion Juicer or another grater or food processor, the main idea is to produce as much juice as possible. The juice is the medium that activates the fermentation. With the Champion Juicer use the "blank" instead of the grater; this produces more juice. 6.
Uncover after approximately 7 days and skim off the cabbage leaves and a small layer underneath. 12. Transfer the sauerkraut to a glass container, cover, and refrigerate. The sauerkraut is always fermenting, and if left outside of the refrigerator, this fermentation process will accelerate. The refrigerator greatly slows or stops the fermentation process. Fermented sauerkraut can be stored for several months in a cold enough refrigerator. If the vegetables get fizzy, then they are spoiled and should not be eaten.
Place a weight on top of the cabbage leaves and allow to ferment 3-4 days. Pickled Vegetables Balances V, neutral for P, unbalances K All Seasons 4 carrots, chopped 2 zucchini, chopped 2 cucumbers, chopped 2 red or green peppers, chopped Vi head cauliflower florets Vi head broccoli florets 5 garlic cloves 2 Tbs whole coriander 2 Tbs cumin Vi tsp cayenne Vi tsp ginger Raw apple cider vinegar Chop vegetables into bite-sized pieces and place in a l-gallon jar. Add mixture of 60% apple cider vinegar and 40% water to the jar, so that all ingredients are covered by liquid.
Cover the surface with the outer cabbage leaves set aside earlier. 8. Put a plate on top of the leaves inside the crock. 9. Put the weighted jar on top of the plate. 10. Cover with the towel and set in a location that is approximately room temperature. The fermentation process takes 4 to 7 days. On warm to hot days, the process may take only 4 days; however, on cold winter days it would be wise to leave it sit for 7 days. Occasional tastes will be the main way one knows if the batch is ready. If the fermentation goes too long the kraut will have a more spoiled taste.

Put many fresh cabbage leaves on top of the vegetables. Gently, yet firmly and evenly, compress the leaves using your hands and body weight. Put a plate as wide as possible on the crock. Put a rock or other weight on the plate. Do not put so much weight that the juice is forced up above the fermenting vegetables. Check that the weight is right and the plate is sitting even and flat a few times in the next 24-36 hours. Let the vegetables sit in a well-ventilated room at room temperature (between 60-72F).

Applying raw cabbage leaves as a poultice affords a slightly stimulating poultice, which is best used in conditions where one is treating a sluggish, ill-conditioned, offensive skin ulcer. Root Poultice These emollient poultices can be prepared from any of the tender culinary roots (and tubers) hke Carrot,Turnip, Potato, or Burdock. Simply boil the tender roots, remove the skin, and mash them into a soft pulp. These make a mdd, nutritive, emollient poultice. Like the Cabbage poultice, when needed, a raw version of these root poultices renders increased stimulating action.

Reduce swelling by applying cabbage leaves to the area. Discard the first outer leaves because they usually have large, heavy veins. Dip a cabbage leaf in extremely hot water to further diminish the cabbage's vein, and fasten it around the swollen area. General Therapy Supplementation with coenzyme Q10 may help protect athletes against exercise-induced muscle injury. Use citrus bioflavonoid supplements to reduce the recovery time of swelling due to sports injuries. Heat a leaf of an aloe plant and apply to any swollen area to reduce swelling.

Bring a large saucepan of water to boil, and cook the 8 large cabbage leaves for five minutes. Cool under running cold water, then drain and set aside. Combine soy ground round, cooked rice, scallions, salt, caraway seeds, thyme, and pepper in a large bowl, and toss until thoroughly blended. In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shredded cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is soft, about 10 minutes. Add tomato puree, raisins, brown sugar, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and ginger and stir.
While sauce is simmering, fill the cabbage leaves by placing about Vi cup of the filling into the center of each cabbage leaf. Fold up the bottom of the leaf to cover the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up to cover the top. Place half the cabbage/tomato mixture in casserole dish large enough to hold the cabbage rolls in one layer. Place the cabbage rolls on top, and then cover with the remaining cabbage/tomato mixture. Cover the casserole with foil, transfer to the preheated oven, and bake for 1 hour.

Cooked buckwheat can serve as a stuffing for everything from cabbage leaves and collard greens to knishes. Buckwheat flour combined variously with whole wheat, unbleached white, and soy flours is a delight to pancake lovers. Whole grain buckwheat flour is always dark; light-colored buckwheat flour is made from sifted flour rather than from unroasted groats. A Japanese pasta called soba (containing anywhere from 30 to 100 percent buckwheat flour) is now readily available in natural food stores and in Asian markets.

Use greens of your choosing to replace spinach; most are more resistant to overcooking than spinach is, so novice cooks can feel more confident Stuff greens the same as you would cabbage leaves. Serve poached chicken or main-dish salads on a bed of crisp raw greens. Season greens with fresh garlic, nutmeg, allspice, hot peppers, thyme, or oregano. Also worth a try are onions, chives, scallions, garlic, gingerroot, peanuts, or pine nuts. If you must add fat, favor olive oil for both flavor and health.

CABBAGE SAVES IRRADIATED RATS The first modern scientific clues came in 1931; a German scientist experimenting with deadly radiation discovered that rabbits survived an otherwise lethal dose of radiation if they ate cabbage leaves prior to exposure. French scientists in 1950 found the same thing. In extensive experiments in 1959, two United States Armed Forces researchers fed diced raw cabbage (as well as broccoli and beets) to guinea pigs before and after giving them 400 rads of deadly whole body X radiation.

Medicinal Actions & Uses Cabbage's best-known medicinal use is as a poultice -the leaves of the wild or cultivated plant are blanched, crushed, or chopped, and applied to swellings, tumors, and painful joints. Wild cabbage leaves eaten raw or cooked aid digestion and the breakdown of toxins in the liver so the Romans' eating it to ease a hangover was in fact quite sensible. Cabbage is also detoxifying and helpful in the long-term treatment of arthritis. The high vitamin C content of cabbage has made it useful in the prevention of scurvy.
They also used cabbage leaves to cleanse infected wounds. One traditional method of making a cabbage poultice, which is still used today, is to cut out the midrib of a leaf and iron it, placing it while still hot on the area to be treated. Medicinal Actions & Uses Cabbage's best-known medicinal use is as a poultice -the leaves of the wild or cultivated plant are blanched, crushed, or chopped, and applied to swellings, tumors, and painful joints.

Despite their long history and nutritional benefits, collards have never gained wide acceptance except in the southeastern United States. Buying Tips Choose relatively small, firm, springy leaves that show no yellowing or insect holes. Store collards in a plastic bag and refrigerate, using them as soon as possible. Culinary Uses Collard greens are more tender than kale and less pungent than mustard greens, with an assertively earthy flavor. Young greens can be eaten raw, chopped into a mixed green salad. Older leaves need to be cooked, in the manner of spinach.

Another excellent poultice for arthritic pains can be prepared with corn or millet porridge, both of which are thought to increase circulation. Apply the poultice as hot as you can tolerate it. Another great remedy for arthritis is a hot pack (poultice) of hayseed applied to the area of joint pain. Hot wax will ease the pain.

Back in the barn, I gave her 100 drops (4 ml) of the tinctures (repeated every other hour for the next two days) and poulticed her udder with the hot cabbage leaves (four times a day). After a month of gradually decreasing treatment and attention (we were down to one poultice and 50 drops of tincture mix once a day), I proclaimed her cured. Within the week, the infection was back, worse than ever: Four lumps ulcerated right through her udder. Over the next seven days I put every ointment from my cupboard on her udder, but none of them seemed to really counter the infection and congestion.

Clean 8 whole cabbage leaves and tightly steam. Then place over the affected area by overlapping them in layers, like laying shingles. Cover with a towel and heat source as in any poultice.
