Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Danish Red Cabbage

This recipe was a traditional Christmas dish when I was growing up and we went to Grandma Petersen's house for Christmas Eve Dinner and Christmas Day Dinner.   I know it is not something that everyone likes, but I have always liked it.  This is the recipe that my sister, Karen, used.

1 small head of red cabbage

Finely chopped.  You don't want the pieces too big.
Simmer in a pan with a small amount of water until tender.

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 small jar of red current jelly
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs butter

Simmer for 1/2 hour with the lid on.  Remove the lid and continue to simmer until most of the moisture is cooked off.  It's better if it is left to sit in its juices over night.
