Using the Harvest — Cabbage

Just a few weeks ago, this is what my cabbage patch looked like.

Cabbage Patch in August

I had 12 large cabbages in a cabbage bed 4 feet by 6 feet.  Most of them were about 2 pounders, but one was huge!

This one was huge — as big as his head!  This called for some serious recipe searching.  After all, how much coleslaw can one family eat.  Here is one of our favorite recipes for cooked cabbage.

Cabbage in Cream


1/2 cup butter

1 large head cabbage shredded and washed

1 cup heavy cream

In a heavy skillet, melt the butter and let it get quite hot.  Put in the cabbage all at once, but do not stir until it begins to brown on one side.  Stir and fry until the cabbage is beginning to brown.  Add the heavy cream, stir and turn the heat down to low.  Cover the pan and allow to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.  Salt generously and serve.
