My parents and in-laws immigrated to the US in the 1920s. I have been researching their experiences and found some interesting recipes from that era. This one is a Belgian version of boiled dinner. You can substitute regular cabbage for savoy cabbage if necessary; also, omit the turnips entirely or substitute with rutabaga, if desired.
