I am an advocate of slow-cooking and often send people to the Weston A. Price site for quality information and education. This organization is a grassroots movement that supports small farms and the consumer right to obtain REAL food.
Today, I cleaned out plants from my garden that are finished for the season. Afterward, I picked a few of my cabbages and made several quarts of lacto-fermented sauerkraut. I highly recommend the process. You can find the recipe in Sally Fallon's cookbook, Nourishing Traditions as well as on the Weston A. Price website.
