Cabbage with Juniper Berries fr. Deborah Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone"
1 small Savoy or green cabbage, about 1 1/2 pounds
salt and pepper
1 1/2 tablespoon butter
1 leek, including an inch of the green part, diced
10 juniper berries, bruised in a mortar
1/3 cup cream
Quarter the cabbage, remove the core, and cut into wide ribbons
or squares. Boil, uncovered, in well-salted water for about
4 minutes. Drain, rinse under cool water, and squeeze out the
excess moisture with your hands.
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the leek, juniper, and
1 tablespoon of water. Cook over medium heat until the leek is
tender, about 5 minutes, then add the cabbage and cream. Add
salt if needed. Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
Taste again for salt and season with pepper.
4 cups shredded green cabbage
½ cup shredded carrot
½ cup finely slivered green pepper
¼ cup cider vinegar
4 teaspoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon minced onion
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon curry powder, or more to taste
¼ teaspoon celery seed
¼ teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
- In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, carrot, and green pepper.
