Bertha's Luscious Cabbage

Recipe by Meghan Williams

For those who don't always like cabbage, let this change their minds! My Dad exclaimed "this is the best cabbage I have EVER had!" All thanks to my mother-in-law from whom I got the recipe :)

Outstanding! I used chicken broth in place of water, and skipped the sugar. Yum! I couldn't stop eating it. Highly recommended. Thank you.
