1. Place cabbage in a very large bowl. Toss with salt, massaging it into the leaves with your hands. Add water and let stand for 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

2. Rinse thoroughly in a colander to remove salt, working in batches. Drain well, then pat dry between paper towels.

3. Stir in remaining ingredients, then pack into canning jars. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
