Orange Oil Update & Pressed salted Cabbage

 Good morning Thursday  (if you visiting me from the blog party visit my post and giveaway here) 

 This morning I strained off the dried orange peels in vodka to make  orange oil.(see my January blog archive for post) I will now put a coffee filter over the top with a rubber band, and let the alcohol evaporate-and hopefully end up with orange oil.  

We got these gorgeous large pink grapefruits in this week, so I am drying those peels too.

In the back you can see my Japanese veggie press with shredded cabbage. I am making up a small batch of fermented cabbage which should help my digestive system get back on the mends. It is made with shredded cabbage, and I boiled 1 teaspoon of salt in a cup of water and cooled and then added over the cabbage. The top squeezes down over the veggies. Should be ready by evening or tomorrow morning.
