Finished product!  Very tightly pack all of the greens and liquid into a pint mason jar making sure that the water level is above the greens. Loosely cap the jar and let it sit for 7 to 10 days or until desired taste.  Every few days make sure liquid level is above greens.(very important for safety) Then transfer into your fridge and enjoy.
