This is my mother's recipe - I don't know where she got it from. It is a great way to cook cabbage, which leaves it slightly crunchy and tasting delicious. Nothing like the awful boiled cabbage you remember from school! Cabbage is very good for you, as it contains anti-oxidants, vitamin C and all sorts of other things. Try this as a vegetable with chops or burgers and plain boiled potatoes. You can use leftover cabbage and potato to make Bubble and Squeak.
