|| My mom grew lots of cabbage this year (either that, or else it just did really well!) and has given us some to use. Admittedly, cabbage isn't our most favorite vegetable (we wouldn't want to eat it every day!), but we do enjoy it.
Our simplest way of eating cabbage is making Quick and Easy Fried Cabbage. It's not too greasy, but tastes better than plain old boiled and salted cabbage. Fried cabbage is what my mom usually made with it when I was growing up, and I always looked forward to it!
Recently, I tried a recipe for Easy Cabbage Casserole. I was quite pleased with the results! I made a large dish of it, and Yehoshua and I re-warmed leftovers for two additional meals (without Joshua). It's not something I would want to eat really often, but it was good, and used lots of cabbage :D.
I still have a head of cabbage in the refrigerator, and am trying to decide if I want to go to the bother of making cole slaw (I have a good recipe, but Joshua and I both aren't real big cole slaw eaters) or cabbage rolls, or, creating my own "cabbage roll casserole" which has been "cooking" in my brain for a while now. ;)
A couple years ago, we dehydrated a lot of cabbage, and I love to use it in my Beef Vegetable Soup! Cabbage is one of the key ingredients in that soup, and it's so delicious! Using the dried cabbage makes the soup even quicker and easier to make, since I don't normally buy cabbage.
My parents make sauer kraut, but neither Joshua nor I care much for that, either. Last week, my mom made 60 pounds of cabbage into sauer kraut, and she said she still has more cabbage to use!
Tomorrow: A special red raspberry treat!
