my grandmother’s cabbage recipe
I skyped my grandmother yesterday to ask about her famous cabbage recipe. I would cook a bit, then skype her in Poland, then cook a bit then call again for advice.
It's probably not as good as hers, not sure what she does, I guess Babcia Magic!
1 cabbage – finely chopped, i used my food processor and pulsed
1/2 cup of butter ( more if you want)
1/2 onion – finely chopped
1 teaspoon of honey
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 a lemon
1 tbsp of flour and 2 tbsp butter (optional)
Fill a large pot with cold water, add cabbage and bring to the boil, boil for 1 minute.
Drain all the water out. return to stove, add butter, salt, pepper and onion and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until tender. stirring occasionally. You can add a bit of water if need be.
taste to see if tender. Add honey, and squirt a bit of lemon juice until taste is what you like. Optional: In a small frying pan melt butter, add flour, create a paste that is bubbling a bit, make sure to stir this constantly. Add to Cabbage and stir really well.
