Place into two large, mason jars. Pack slaw down with smaller jar or masher.
Make sure there is juice (salt brine) on top that covers vegetables — no vegetables sticking up above juice.
Seal with a lid lightly and set jars on cake pan.
Store jars in a dark pantry. Check every 2 days to see if you need to pack the vegetables down or add more brine.
Taste after 1 week, this can ferment at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Transfer to the refrigerator when you like the taste..
If vegetables on top change color or get brown you can take the top layer off and add more brine,
