Nurturing my cabbages

After a season of nurturing my cabbages we are starting to eat them daily. I had to hand pick off many many white cabbage moth caterpillars to allow the cabbages to grow without well as spray them with my vinegar mix.

But the hard work was worth it. Here are my 3 most easiest cabbage recipes.

For small cabbages, peel off outer leaves, cut in half, boil in a little water with a teaspoon of beefstock and when done sprinkle with grated paremezan.

For large red cabbage, wash and shred finely. Fry some onion in butter and then add cabbage. Peel and chop 1 apple and add. Add 1 tablespoon of baslamic vinegar then reduce heat and allow to gently cook in its own juices.

My simple coleslaw which is great on crusty bread....

Wash and shred your cabbage, add a good dollop of home made mayonnaise.

Those red cabbages look delicious, could you tell me where you got the seeds from, as from George to Jeffreys Bay, we havn't been able to find any for the last year now! Keep up the good work!
P.S. Does Superman ever travel to the Langkloof?????

Have you tried The Gravel Garden for seeds?

These red cabbages I bought as seedlings, I cheated!!!
