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.
