    2. Mix in the bay leaves.
    3. Boil the water. Mix in the salt and the sugar. Cool the water till it reaches room temperature.
    4. Pour the water over the cabbage and make sure all the cabbage is covered with water.
    5. Put weigh on the cabbage ( any heavy object that can be soaked.) Cover the jar with cloth. Tie a rubber band around the cloth. Place the jar inside a salad bowl, in case some liquid escapes during the fermentation process.
    6. Leave the jar in a warm, dark place for three days.
    7. On the third day, puncture the cabbage with a wooden stick to allow some fermentation gases to escape.
    8. Let the cabbage sit for a few more hours, then ( optionally pour off the liquid,) refrigerate and serve.
