I felt like the heads would surely split and they would go to the bugs if I didn't act. Sooooo, with 2 trash bags in hand and my assortment of garden buckets, gloves and my butcher knife. (I was committed!) I headed to the garden sometime around 8 or so this morning.
This morning when I spoke with Mother she suggested I make Freezer Slaw and put some away for the winter. We all love it and it is Mother's recipe. I think she got it from her Mother if I remember correctly. The recipe reads like you are making a batch using one medium large head of cabbage. I doubled it and used several cabbages of assorted sizes and it came out just right.
1 medium large head of cabbage
1 T. salt
1 red and 1 green bell pepper
1 1/2 C. sugar
1 C. vinegar ( I use cider vinegar)
1 t. celery seed
1 t. mustard seed
