Cabbage was another one of those vegtables we always had available.. Ten
or twenty cents would buy enough seeds to plant literally hundreds of
cabbage. Cabbage grew well just about anywhere and didn’t require a lot
of care. My only complaint about cabbage was that they tended to give
some people a lot of gas :-) Still, they are filling and healthy.
˝ pound bacon
1 large head cabbage
˝ tsp salt
˝ tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic
˝ tsp red pepper flakes
Fry the bacon until crispy in large frying pan
Pour off most of the grease. Break the bacon into pieces.
Chop the cabbage into pieces removing the hard center.
Add the cabbage to the pan containing the bacon. Add
the seasoning and 1/3 cup of water.
Cook covered over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir then
continue cooking until desired tenderness.
Note: You preserve more vitamins and mineral if you cook the cabbage less.
