This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

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.

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

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
