The Shady Porch: Fresh Freezer Slaw

7.15.2011

Fresh Freezer Slaw

We had a big harvest of cabbage today...four heads. In our never ending quest to preserve, we found a wonderful recipe for freezer slaw. How great is that? You make the slaw and freeze it until you need it. The recipe says that the slaw stays crisp even after thawing too. This is a delicious slaw(...taste tested). It was almost like I planned it, the new food processor was ready for pickup today and it made short work of all of the chopped ingredients that the recipe calls for. Otherwise get ready for an arm work out with the grater. When we finished up we had 21 cups of freezer slaw.

1 onion
1 red or green pepper
1 T. salt
2 cups of Sugar or  
(we used 1 cup Splenda Blend)
1 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup oil (vegetable or olive)
1 T. celery seed
1 T. mustard seed or substitute 1 T. ground mustard

Shred cabbage, carrots, onions and peppers.
Boil dressing ingredients one minute.
Add salt and mix it into the shredded vegetables. Set aside for 1 hour.

Mix sugar, vinegar, oil, celery seed, and mustard seed and bring to boil. Boil for one minute and chill until cold.

Drain liquid from chopped vegetables.

Mix well - slaw dressing with chopped vegetables. **NOTE- You might want to add the dressing in phases. We felt like there was too much dressing for the amount of slaw so we did not use it all.**

Thaw and serve.
