What a festive table, but without a delicious snack? Today on our table there will be a colorful, tasty, healthy and, which is important for these times, a budget snack: pickled cabbage in slices! For such pickling, not only white cabbage is suitable, but also red cabbage and even cauliflower.

It is not for nothing that the appetizer is called world or, more simply: folk. The way of cutting gives a special flavor to the dish: in pieces. This makes the cabbage more aromatic, crisp and juicy. Consider how to sentence her deliciously in our article.

Features of pickling in large pieces

Attention: The main feature of the sauerkraut marinating recipe is the way the cabbage heads are cut. Heads of cabbage for this harvest are worth buying dense. The method for cutting cabbage is in large pieces or squares with a side of at least 3 cm. If you follow this simple advice, cabbage will remain crispy even after pouring it with hot marinade.

Carrots and beets, if present in the recipe, are also usually placed raw and cut into rings or strips. If garlic is present in the recipe, then put it in whole cloves or finely chopped. Sometimes cabbage is pickled with hot pepper pods... Peppers can be cut into rings or strips. Bell pepper - cut horizontally into strips or just halves.

Pros and cons of the recipe

It is worth noting the pros and cons of cooking pickled cabbage in slices. Pickled cabbage, unlike sauerkraut, cooks very quickly, but it is infused for only a couple of hours! Unlike sauerkraut, the sourdough process of which is rather capricious, pickled cabbage is a favorite among young housewives.

It is absolutely certain that even a beginner in the kitchen can handle the preparation of pickled cabbage. The only relative disadvantage is the presence of a bite in recipes.

Buy good quality vinegar... For example, you can use grape. Its cost, of course, is higher than the price of an ordinary apple cider. A bottle of such vinegar 0.25 liters - about 55 rubles. But such vinegar gives aroma, special piquancy and some softness.

If you have not found such a product on the counter of the store, then ordinary vinegar will do. The main thing is to observe the dosage according to the recipe, and then the snack from the jar will be fresh and tasty many months after preparation!

With all the visible advantages, we are obliged to warn those who suffer from exacerbations of stomach diseases. Pickled dishes perfectly diversify the table, but people with low acidity of gastric juice, they, alas, are contraindicated, you need to remember this. If you have pancreatitis, kidney disease, or allergic reactions to this product, it is best to refrain from consuming this snack.

Vegetable choice: white, colored or red?

The choice of cabbage is the key to the success of a delicious snack on the festive table. Most often, white and red cabbage is used for pickling. But lovers of cauliflower will not be disappointed either: you can take it for the recipe too.

  1. White cabbage - a storehouse of vitamins. It contains A, C, PP, group B and rare U. It is vitamin U that makes cabbage curative for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, heals ulcers and erosion. This vegetable contains essential organic acids as well as:
    • fructose;
    • fiber;
    • potassium;
    • calcium;
    • iron;
    • manganese;
    • iodine;
    • phosphorus;
    • sulfur;
    • zinc.

    For those on a diet, great news: the calorie content of white pickled cabbage per 100 grams is only 56 kcal. If you eat 100 g of this snack, you get 0.93 g of protein, 3.7 g of fat, 4.5 g of carbohydrates. More information about the calorie content, benefits and dangers of pickled cabbage can be found in this article.

  2. Red cabbage also good for marinades. By and large, in appearance, it differs from the white one only in color: the head of cabbage is painted with a bright purple color. This phenomenon is easy to explain: there is a special pigment - the flavonoid anthocyanin.

    The substance is a powerful antioxidant, protects cells from destruction, promotes the elimination of toxins from the body. The main advantage of this cabbage is that it can help normalize blood pressure.

    The fact is that regular consumption of this cabbage helps to restore the elasticity of blood vessels. Another advantage of red cabbage is that it has much more vitamin C, exactly twice, and carotene - as much as 4!

  3. Cauliflower also has its merits. The main advantage of cauliflower: it contains 2 times more protein than white cabbage, and three times more vitamin C.

As for the disadvantages of red cabbage and cauliflower, then it is, perhaps, one: the price. The cost on store counters is higher than that of the classic white cabbage.
