Seven Minute Cabbage

Things have been a little hectic since the weekend. After a very depressing couple of months without a cat in the house we finally have a new kitten. He is very active and has earned the name of Loki. Keyboards fascinate him and he tries to help type if he is awake. That is why I haven’t posted much lately.

The usual ways to serve cabbage is in slaw, soup or in a stew. Cabbage cooked this way makes a nice side dish to serve with pork or ham. The recipe came from a Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook.


  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 cups of chopped cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • Salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste


Pour the milk into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and add the butter and cabbage. Cook for seven minutes. Thicken by mixing the flour with a bit of water and stirring into the milk. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.


Diced onion can be added.

This also works with Brussels sprouts.
