This is an old fashioned recipe that is my 'Great Grandmothers'.. We have kept it and vary it as the mood or holiday demands. You can add white raisins or some chopped dried apricots to the meat mixture to make it a bit more exotic Hungarians love to change things and make it their own so I encourage you to do the same. I chose to use Savoy cabbage as it is a better texture for my brood. This is my first attempt to share my own recipe here so, please ask me if you have questions.. and forgive my English/spelling errors as I do my best! So, from my wonderful family to yours,
