purple cabbage golumpkies

a recipe by

My grandparents came from the Ukraine over 100 yrs. ago. My grandfather made everything from his country almost every day of the week and my mother learned from him. Throughout the years the recipe has changed (a little bit) and I put a new twist on it by changing the cabbage to purple and the rice flavor & spices. The freezing of the cabbage makes it easier to get the leaves to soften enough to work with. I hope you and your family enjoys it as much as we do!
