This is also considered (Hot Cabbage Salad) and was first introduced to America by the Holland Dutch when they settled in New York in 1624. They called it "Kool-slaa" and considered this their "great salad dressed with vinegar."

This is a recipe I found in my Grammie's Betty Crocker Picture Book.

    1/4 cup mild vinegar
    1 Tbsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp dry mustard

  3. Then stir into the hot vinegar in saucepan. Cook until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat.
    Beat in...
    2 Tbsp cream
  4. Pour while hot over...
    4 cups finely shredded cabbage
  5. Serve hot or cold.
    To serve hot, place in pan over low heat just until heated through.

    I did heat mine in a pan and served it that way.
  6. From: Shelia Senghas:
    As I was walking towards the steps she was standing on the porch.
    I greeted her and I asked her if she wouldn't mind holding the bowl so that I could take a photo of it. Then I asked her to move closer towards the bell. As I took a couple of photos I told her what it was for. She just smiled and got real happy and said, "I am going to be famous, I am going to be on the internet."

    Shelia made this with apple cider vinegar and loved it too.
