From the Garden...Creamy Cabbage

We loved this very, very easy recipe for cabbage from the "Farm Journal Time Saving Country Cookbook".  Our mothers and grandmothers prepared cabbage lots of ways, and we still like it.  I served this as a side with Mustard Cream Pork Chops on homemade noodles – a real old-country comfort meal!

  1. Thank you for a cooked cabbage recipe! These are hard to come by, except for standard cooked cabbage. I always feel it's okay to eat a higher-calorie cooked vegetable, especially if you are having lean meat at the meal. Not only is this very easy, but it's from ingredients on hand (if people keep on hand all the various spices, like I do.)

    1. Chuck, If you put cabbage in the search box, top left hand corner, we have a few cooked cabbage recipes on the blog. Both of our families like cooked cabbage as well as fresh cabbage.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
