I saw this great post about cabbage juice at the Whole Body Health and Fitness Blog.
I’ve tried some of the slow cooker recipes from this site and they’ve been really successful (enjoyed not just by me, but the whole family). So, when I read about the cabbage juice, despite thinking that it did not sound like it would end in a tasty drink, I decided to give it a try.
I’m willing to do quite a lot to gain all the health benefits listed in the original article: there were 17 separate bullet points.
However, even before I took the lid off the pot (3 days after setting up the mixture) I had been wondering why the kitchen smelt funny. Once I removed the lid, the reason became clear. The juice smelled REALLY bad. Despite the smell I did try and drink a spoonful of it, but I could taste/smell the stuff for a good hour afterwards and it made me slightly nauseous. Perhaps my container did not have a tight enough lid, or perhaps I forgot to add the salt, or perhaps it’s always like that. I do know that this experiment was a fail and this is one healthy drink that I won’t be partaking of.
