    Kaarin's Note:

    Sweet and tangy. I found this on a magazine clipping in my grandma's recipe box. I know she used to freeze it, although I haven't tried that yet. The long cook time is the marinating.

      What a fabulous recipe! And so healthy! 2% fat, low in calories and absolutely delicious! Right now the weather is still quite chilly so I halved the recipe. I made it with half a Savoy cabbage and because I didn’t have any celery seeds, I followed Kumquat the Cat’s friend’s suggestion about the celery salt. I used brown sugar and used only a half cup to the half cup of vinegar. Healthier to reduce the sugar, I know, but I wasn’t being noble here: Australians just don’t eat food as sweet as Americans generally do. We all waited for the magical 24 hours refrigeration time to pass before eating this! Wow! I’m intrigued by step 7: that it will keep in the fridge for so many weeks. I think this would only happen if it were well-hidden: it would all be gobbled up long before that! Once the weather is warmer, I’m going to be making large quantities of this regularly – some for me; some for my parents – and enjoying it as a side dish and in sandwiches all summer long. And nostalgically remembering back to when the 2005 Zaar Tour was in Asia! Kaarin, thank you. I’m so pleased to have found this recipe!

      This is almost identical to the slaw my in-laws always kept in their freezer and I now make. It is great any time of year but we especially like it with barbecued ribs. I like your addition of celery and the use of the red pepper for color. Pretty, crunchy and flavorful - this is a great recipe. Thanks Kaarin.

      What a nice change from regular coleslaw. This was so good with my roast beef dinner. We loved it so much I am going to make it for our Christmas dinner.
