Been canning up a cabbage storm this week. A local gardener had a bumper crop this year of green cabbage, savory cabbage and purple cabbage. I was given the savory cabbage. Six of the largest heads I have ever seen that were perfect without any eaten spots by cabbage varmints.
I made three different recipes. The first was good old fashioned stuffed cabbage rolls. After rolling up 15 rolls per quart jar I realized that when the consumers opened the yummy jars they would be dumping out the contents into a sauce pan and the beautiful rolls would fall apart. Since holding them together with toothpicks did not seem like a good idea, the next batch I did differently. I shredded the blanched cabbage and folded it into the organic hamburger and brown rice mixture. I called it stuffed cabbage mix. I am pleased with the looks of the results. I do have to admit that the rolls look like brains once canned.
The third recipe was a curried relish I have made in the past. Yum yum curried relish is so good with meat dishes and it also really good with tuna fish. A time consuming process when the mixture is salted and sets for 3-4 hours. While I was grating the mixture, my food processor began to smoke and broke. I thought I was up the creek without a paddle but along came Mom who bought me a super delux processor as an early birthday present .Pictures coming.
I hope the family has some delicious dishes.
