Nana's Fried Cabbage and Onions

Deneece Gursky


Another of Nana's recipes that I have always loved. She never wrote anything down, everything was always in her head. When she started aging I went to her house and sat with her and had her tell me the ingredients to all her recipes. I did this every day for weeks! Some things she couldn't tell me how much of an ingredient because as she said "she went by taste or feel or smell" so in the beginning it was trial and error for me sometimes. But eventually I would get it right and it would taste just like nana's. I started writing the measurements down but realized one day i had slowly turned into Nana because I dont really use measuring cups etc. Spices and seasonings are always to taste : )
