How to Make Kimchi / Kim Chee
Glad to hear you had success, and I hope you continue to enjoy making your own sauerkraut, and check out some of the interesting variations others have shared here on Instructables, too! :) I agree that the degree of crunchiness does seem to be inverse to the degree of fermentation. Sometimes if a kraut batch seems to go soft too quickly, it can mean it will not hold long before spoiling, and in that case, using it up quickly may be a good idea. Thanks for sharing your success!
Just finished a 4-week batch of sauerkraut and it's great! Keeping all the cabbage under the brine is key. This time I used a baggie filled with brine (in case it opened). Cabbage is not as crunchy as 1-week sauerkraut but has much more probiotic goodness. :)

How to Milk an Almond (fresh homemade almond milk, easy)
1 gallon of cow milk takes about 1000 gallons of water to produce, 3 times as much as almond milk.

Seeing a lot of criticisms back and forth, how these tricks aren't really learning it, how anyone can and should be able to memorize their times tables if they just apply themselves, etc. While it may be human nature to universalize our own experiences, it's true that some people really do have extraordinary difficulty with tasks that are simple for most, such as memorizing math facts, and for those, having any hook or peg to hang the thought on, to attach it to something else, whether a mnemonic, or this finger method, can be helpful. So what? If a person who could never remember what 6X9 was through more traditional methods, was able to do it with this one, that hurts no one, and helps the person it helps.As for it not being an authentic representation of what 6X9 is in terms of arrays, well...that depends. If you closely examine the 9 method on fingers, you will see it does indeed represent something real going on with multiplication of 9s. Even if you draw arrays, you see the same pattern that 9 is always one less than 10, so that however many 9s you have, you have that many more ones, fewer. 9X3 is 3 instances of something being 1 less than 10, so it's only 1 less than 10 the first 10, then the next 10, it's 1 less again, for a total of two less (18...2 less than 20!) and then for each iteration, take again another "one less than 10" cumulatively (27...3 less than 30). I see the same pattern evident in the finger method for the 9s, at least. In mathematics, there can be many ways to solve the same problem, and still be correct in the end, and all are valid. In fact, the more comfortable you are with finding more than one way to solve a problem, the stronger your overall understanding is.
Thanks for this! Intriguing and would have saved me a lot of frustration in high school because I could never, never remember the stupid combinations, nor which way to turn first. Having discovered I can feel sticking points and easily opened a 3-digit dial number combination lock without knowing the combination, I look back and wish I had thought to pick my own locker padlock, instead of being late to class trying every combination of turn directions and numbers I thought I remembered. Finally gave up using a locker at all and lugged everything on my back all day. As for those who feel you are doing wrong to share this information, that's a naive position to take, considering as others have mentioned, there are far less subtle ways of defeating cheapo locks if a person is up to no good and wants the job done fast and sloppy. I think you're doing a public service to all the grannies and others mentioned out there, by warning them (or people who love them and want to warn them) that these cheap locks are next to useless, good only for things like keeping toddlers out of something.But yes, honest people CAN have a reason to know how to pick locks: some of us are really scatterbrained, and could save ourselves a lot of trouble by being able to pick our own locks, if and when we lose the key or forget the combination.

Mead is from yeast eating the sugar and producing alcohol.Other kinds of fermentation use bacteria (and sometimes molds) - altogether different beasties. Kimchi and sauerkraut ferment primarily form lactic-acid bacteria.Yeasts and molds are in the kingdom of Fungi, they are eukayotes (have organelles even if only single-celled).Bacteria are smaller and are a different branch of the biological family - prokaryotes, no internal organelles.

I live in Southern Ecuador where naturally sour oranges are grown for both medicinal and food reason, and I plan on using these to make my marmalade. However, we also have nothing comparable to canning jars or any new jars that are reasonably priced. So, I am wondering if, after the marmalade has cooled, if it could be poured into heavy-duty freezer bags until thawed for use. Thanks for any advice anyone might have on using the freezer bags!
