      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Chop Cabbage
  1. Place  half of the roughly chopped cabbage in TM bowl.


    Chop 5-8 seconds, speed 4 or until desired consistency. Use spatula to push cabbage down onto the blades.

    Repeat above step with second half of the cabbage.

    Tip into large clean bowl, Add salt, caraway seeds and sugar.


    With your hands mix and squeeze and push the cabbage firmly down to extract juices. Leave about 15 minutes and do this again.


    There should now be liquid. Place into a sterilized jar and push down, making sure liquid covers cabbage. If not add some water.


    Cover with lid or teatowel and place jar in a dark, warm spot in your kitchen for 1-3 weeks. Takes the shorter time in a hot climate.


    When it is ready it will taste tangy and sour.


    If you have any white scum (harmless) on the top, skim off.


    Store sealed jar in the refrigerator once it is fermented.


    Usually last 2 months once opened and 12 months unopened.
