Freezer Coleslaw

This year I had a few cabbages that made it, with out getting eaten by worms.  So I made up some freezer coleslaw.  I have made this before and it was a nice treat in the winter.  Start with one large head of cabbage. This is the biggest head that I have ever grown, just don't usually have good luck with cabbage in my garden.

Shred the cabbage and add 1 tsp. salt and let set for one hour.  After setting rinse the cabbage and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

To the shredded cabbage add one cup grated carrots.

In a pan on the stove put 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1 cup cider vinegar, 1 tsp. celery seed,                   
 1 tsp. mustard seed.  Bring to a boil and pour over cabbage and carrots.  Mix together.

Place in freezer containers.  This head made four quarts.  Kept one quart out for supper.

Working on getting as much canning and freezing done before school starts and it's time to go back to work.  Will miss not being home!  I am thankful for the job that the Lord opened up for me last year and that I can be home for the summer months.

Have a great evening.

I do not have much success with cabbage in our garden either. Seems like the bugs and worms enjoy it more that we get to. I have made this freezer slaw before. It is really good. Enjoy your day and God bless.
