This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

savoy cabbage

savoy cabbage 040 I harvested this beautiful cabbage head a few days ago. I'm looking for a good recipe as I have a special guest visiting this weekend. Any suggestions?

I'm thinking of maybe an apple and cabbage coleslaw served in the cabbage leaves. ... Some tangy green apples, with a few carrots, raisins and onions added. Maybe this recipe: Yummly Apple Raisin Cole Slaw Recipe.

Gorgeous garden shots and big doggie.

There is a recipe for Pinot Grigio slaw which involves a small amount of peanut butter and is very good. Here is a link from a news paper. It was in our paper years ago, and I make it all the time -hope the link works:

hi Kathy,

I was given this recipe for soup from an Italian man I took care
of as a Home Health Aide.

It might be something you like. And I thought you might want another idea of how to use your
cabbage.

Chop the cabbage in small pieces.
Cook in Chicken broth or water
with bouillon cubes added. I like
to use about 6 cups of water or
chicken broth.

I add rice and garlic. Onions are an option. Other veggies like chopped carrots can be good, too.

I let cabbage and rice cook until
soft.

I add navy beans if I desire.
A secret ingredient of vinegar
makes the recipe complete. A few tablespoons is enough.

I hope this works for you. My son
likes it.
