cool down cooked water, add salt until it's a little bit more saltier than soup, put cabbage in, (try to wipe out the water). add garlic, ginger(skin off), add one table sppon whisky---this is critical.
wait until the color of cabbage all turn yellow.done.yummy, no preserves!
add new things in, but with some salt just like you'd cook it, add whisky a little.
I wish you all good health. after sufferd for 15 years, i'm so healthy, and I thank the Lord.
I'll share with you more, as I go nearer and nearer to the truth.
