Cabbage Time

It is Cabbage time at Our Place. No photos - only a lament that it has taken until this age to discover this way of preparing it:

Finely slice desired quantity of Cabbage.

Grate a Carrot or two.

Finely slice some bacon and lightly fry in a spot of oil in large saucepan (with available lid)

Throw in Cabbage, Carrot and a good pinch of Coriander Seeds, plus no more than a quarter of a cup of water.

Gently cook for about ten to fifteen minutes with lid on saucepan.


Wonderful with mashed potatoes and sausages. Make a bit more of the spud and cabbage, and it makes a stunning bubble and squeak for brekkie.

Nice twist on a family favourite of mine -- we start with onion, not bacon, and omit the spices (caraway is traditional as it is supposed to Mitigate Flatulence. Ahem.)

And my Dad has changed his recipe since he came to Australia; he now uses white wine instead of water. That's multiculturalism for you.

Must give it a try .... sound delicious, especially on a cold day.

There's a 'little challenge' for you on my latest blog posting, Linda.

Nice blog. I will be starting a garden next spring, but being in Canada it will be different from yours!

Great to find your blog. Sounds great. I am in Sydney on a tiny block of land where everything is edible or a companion. Cheers
