•    1 green cabbage
•    1 purple cabbage
•    1 teaspoon coarse salt
•    1 tablespoon of allspices

Wash the cabbages well and cut them into thin strips. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, coarse salt, and allspices. Massage the cabbage with your hands to release its juice. Place the cabbage in a fermentation jar with a lid.

•    For a more intense flavor, you can add 1 tablespoon of dill seeds or 1 teaspoon of ground cumin.
•    If you don't have a fermentation jar, you can use a glass container with a tight-fitting lid.
