Cabbage Cooked with Pork

  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1/2 lb salt pork
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • Butter
  • Pepper
Boil the salt pork gently for 3-4 hours.

Prepare the cabbage and boil rapidly until tender.

Cut a head of cabbage into 4 parts. Soak for half an hour in a pan of cold water to which has been added 1 Tbsp of salt. This will draw out insects or worms that may be hidden in the leaves. After soaking, cut in slices.

Fill a large stew pan half full of boiling water. Put in the cabbage, pushing it under the water with a spoon. Add 1 Tbsp of salt and cook for 25-40 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Turn into a colander and drain, then put in a chopping bowl and mince.

Season with butter, pepper and more salt, if your little heart desires. Allow 1 Tbsp of butter to a pint of cooked cabbage.

Serve the pork with the cabbage.
