Cabbage Recipes You’ll Love! – Part 2

cabbage recipes

We usually don’t measure ingredients or use recipes. We just go by instinct, like so many other people. When we offer recipes, though we sometimes have to do a test run at home first, just to get the measurements right. We’ve been making sautéed cabbage varieties for 2 days now and this afternoon the neighbor came a’ knocking. She said that she had to know what smelled so good. We handed her a dish of the bacon and apple cabbage and she gave us a kiss on the cheek and said that it reminded her of home. She had emigrated from Germany as a child. As she regaled us with stories, we gave her the recipe, even though we will make it for her again soon.
