A lot of hard work went into the harvesting of these few heads :o( I only got two jars of Kraut from them :o( although they were two nice large jars (family size meal). but I managed to get 4 meals of Cabbage leaves for stuffed cabbage..and three meals to make cabbage and potatoes..All I have to do is fry up some country ham and then add the cabbage and potato's or make mashed potato's..and that's a good country (and city)meal :o).. I am a little disappointed with the amount of cabbage heads that formed..I think we might have been better off to plant fall cabbage for my kraut...no matter. I used every bit that I cut today..and still have more growing..They have nice large leaves and some of them were chewed up pretty bad by slugs and whatever else..I remember Gloria Swanson ( an old actress) saying if the bugs don't want it you don't either..I'm glad they left me some :o)
Here I'm laying out the cabbage leaves to
roll them up..They look like one big green cigar
I'll use them to make stuffed cabbage :o)
I'm not a good film maker (yet! :o) I forget
that my camera does it ..You will also see them rolled up in film. We had the TV
on and at the time they were playing country music , it seemed to fit right in with what I was doing. :o)T Some look like Green cigars they are the leaves rolled up for stuffed cabbage..There are about four or five meals in that bag..
Then there are 2 bags with one pound each and one with 1/2 lb cabbage . My film will go by quickly ( I don't know what I'm doing yet!). You can hear the disappointment in my voice after two nice jars...(wish I could say six nice jars :o( I'll just have to remedy that, with more cabbage heads..(not the leaves, they are too tough for kraut). It looks like I haven't made the least bit of a dent in the cabbage.
Update: I don't know why the video's aren't working :o( probably something I didn't do right or something I should and don't know what :o( .
I'm adding the video's again to see if that will work!
