Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

MIX THE FIRST 4 IN A BIG BOWL WELL AND LET STAND FOR 1 HOUR

1
cabbage head shredded
1 medium
onion sliced thinly
1 medium
green bell pepper sliced thinly
1 tsp
sea salt

MIX THESE 5 IN A SAUCE PAN FOR THE STOVE

1/2 c
white vinegar
1/2 c
water
2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
celery seed
1 Tbsp
mustard seed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the cabbage, onion and pepper in a big bowl and sprinkle with the salt and mix together well. Let stand for 1 hour and it will "shrink" down to about 3/4ths to 1/2 of original size. This step is what keeps it crunchy.
2
Next stir together in a sauce pan on med. heat on the stove the vinegar,water,sugar,celery seed and mustard seed. Turn on your over head fan to get rid of the vinegar fumes (pretty potent). Bring to a boil and let boil for 3 minutes. Let cool and when the hour is up on the cabbage pour over and mix together well. Let stand for 1/2 hour to meld the flavors.

Left overs can be put away in the freezer and then thawed out and will still be yummy and crunchy!
