Not Quite Sauerkraut

I live alone so when I buy a bag of coleslaw mix I don't even use half of it. I hate to see it go to waste so I substitute the slaw mix for the 1/2 head cabbage this recipe calls for. I use my own judgment on the amounts of the other ingredients it calls for. Easy to make and tastes great.
