** I like to cut the cabbage in to chunks or strips rather than shredding it, and I always adjust the seasoning depending on how salty, lemony or herby I'm feeling that day. I also really enjoy adding lots of black pepper to add some heat during the cold winter months.
Cabbage Lemon Elixir
This is an excellent source of healthy intestinal bacteria.
1 small cabbage, corred
1 Whole lemon, peeled to remove yellow skin
Fill blender with 1/3 of cabbage, add half the lemon and water to fill half the blander. Pulse to grind cabbage(rather than liquefy).
Transfer to a glass gallong jar.
Repeat the process with the remaining cabbage.
Fill jar to almost full with water. Cover with cheesecloth and put in a warm place for 24-36 hours(depending on the temperature).
Pour elixir into a glass jar to store - straining out the cabbage. Store in the fridge, will keep for 2-3 days.
Use in smoothies and dressings or as a refreshing beverage to replenish healthy intestinal bacteria.

**This recipe sounds kind of complicated, but is acually quite easy to make. The elixir does taste a bit cabaggy, but I find it very refreshing and enjoyable.
