A side dish used by many families in the southeast. A vegetable dish on many cafe menus. The addition of potatoes blend well with the flavor of cabbage---home-style cooking at its best!
- Cut cabbage in 1 inch by 3 inch pieces. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters.
- In a large saucepan bring water, bacon drippings, salt and pepper to a boil. Place cabbage and potatoes into water and simmer on low heat until cabbage and potatoes test done with the prick of a fork.
- To serve use a slotted spoon to lift out cabbage and potatoes.
