    Sharon123's Note:

    Who knew juniper berries are outstanding with cabbage? The cream mixes with the juices, turning into a thin sauce. Serve with noodles, rice, kasha, etc. Enjoy! Did you know juniper berries have been found buried in ancient Egyptian tombs? Adapted from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. There is an extra recipe included here for using this recipe and stuffing cabbage leaves with a cube of Blue cheese.

      Very simple to put together and who doesn't think cabbage rolls look impressive?! Obviously, I did the "extra" recipe using a delicious boutique smoked blue cheese. Thanks, Sharon! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap 28.
