DIRECTIONS

  • Brown the onion in the shortening, only to a golden color. Do not brown.
  • Add the water, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil. (This liquid is just enough for this size cabbage.).
  • Put cabbage in; sprinkle with caraway seed if you wish.
  • Boil for 1/2 hour.
  • Sprinkle with flour. Stir it up and boil just a few seconds for the flour to dissolve.
  • Grandmother notes that you shouldn't "put cooked cabbage in the freezer -- just in box." (Box is the old-time short way of saying "icebox" -- we would say refrigerator!).
