Hi everyone, newbie here.

So I'm aware that cabbage lasts a long time in the backcountry, but what about shredded cabbage? It would be handy to take a ziploc baggie with coleslaw in it IF it doesn't spoil. If it does spoil, I guess I'd be better off to leave it in as large pieces as possible then shred it at meal time.

Thoughts?

Dehydrate it. Not only does it dehydrate easily (shredded) it rehydrates in a flash. Cabbage has a huge amount of water. Why carry it?

Maybe we could recruit Koreans as rangers, and have them stash kimche pots to ferment at every campsite.

Shredded cabbage is one of the easiest foods to dehydrate and when it rehydrates it is amazingly crunchy and like fresh. I often make cole slaw salad in large amounts for groups that I guide. See the recipe here:

I too have been shredding and drying cabbage.

I'll add that it is best not to dry cole slaw dressing that contain oil.
