In-Season Recipe Swap: Cabbage

This week's In-Season Recipe Swap theme is cabbage! :)

My mom always grows lots of cabbage in her garden, and I grew up eating fried cabbage, sauer kraut, and cole slaw regularly. Since getting married, I've also made this easy cabbage casserole, which is a nice change of pace when cabbage is in season. Although cabbage isn't one of our favorite vegetables, Joshua and I both like variety. :)

When we were in Ohio earlier this month, my mom made fresh cole slaw a number of times. I took pictures while I was there! :)

My mom's cole slaw recipe

My mom makes her homemade cole slaw with a vinegar and oil dressing, and a bit of carrot and onion for flavor. So many people have said, after trying my mom's cole slaw, "I don't usually even like cole slaw, but I like this!" :)

oh, I don't ...sorry. The recipe didn't have a picture, and I never took one. I'll remember to include that next time. Deb

Here's another soup recipe I like to make, which is great for chilly weather.

I know I'm a week late on this, but I'd like to submit my cabbage recipe.
It's Sweet 'N Sour Beef 'N Cabbage


I have made my first batch (as a grown up) of Bavarian Sauerkraut in a Polish Fermentation Jar (made by TSM)- which allows for a water seal around the crocks lid to keep oxygen out, and the gasses able to escape, lowering the chance of mold. But if you forget to keep some water around the seal, then it will dry out and air can get it.

Anyway - the kraut turned out great!! The pro-biotics are powerful and the first 1/2 cup of Kraut I ate worked through me like a train headed downhill, but then my body adjusted and it has helped my digestion immensely!

3 heads of cabbage - 1 tblsp sea salt or pickling salt per head, 1 apple, but in quarters, commercial pickling spice or mustard seed, peppercorns, dill seed, corriander seeds, crumbled bay leaves etc.
