Double Murder

 
Posted by Picasa
Two more innocent cabbages lost their lives to serial vegetable killer, Aunt Debbi. The butcher's profile shows that she strikes every year in early spring, but may kill again mid summer. This slaughter appears especially heinous as Aunt Debbi raised the cabbages from seedlings, apparently doting on the things.

Cole Slaw
1 cabbage shredded
2 carrots chopped fine
Juice of one lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
Pinch of salt

Sauerkraut
1 cabbage shredded
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds toasted
Filtered water to cover
Place all ingredients in a plastic bowl. Add enough filtered water to cover the cabbage. Place a clean plate over the cabbage and weight down with a jar of water. Cover with a towel. Press on the plate every day to remove the bubbles. When the kraut stops bubbling, it is done.

  5. Foxy, I figured someone who didn't live in the southern parts of the U.S. would be alarmed. Crappie is a fish it is pronounced crawpi. Glad to make you smile.

  11. Yes, the caraway seed is important, in red cabbage, too. Many don';t add it, but as an Official German I can tell you it's needed!!!

  13. Joy, I have been planning it for weeks. The Monkey's were away. Only the dog can testify against me, if they can get her to talk.

    Silence, There must have been something in the air.

    Thanks Lorilee.

    Brenda, the monkeys are innocent.

    Dee, I've done that too.

    Monica, The caraway seeds smell so good.

    Cindee, They had it coming.
