German Red Cabbage with Apple & Onion


Trudy’s Red Cabbage with Apple & Onion
*******
A traditional accompaniment for Rouladen, Spaetzle, & Green Salad “field greens”. 



1 small head read cabbage, chopped
(or 1 bottle Red Cabbage**)
1 apple, chopped
1 onion, peeled and studded on one half with cloves
Brown sugar, to taste 
1-2 TBL cider vinegar 
Bay leaf
Salt and Pepper

1.     If using raw cabbage, sauté onion first, then add cabbage, apple, sugar, vinegar and seasonings.   Add ¼ C water.  Bring to a boil.  Add onion/cloves.
2.     Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let steam.  Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, adding water if necessary.
3.     If using bottled Red Cabbage:  add to pot, add remaining ingredients.  Cover and let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding water if necessary.

*To cut cabbage:  Cut head of cabbage into quarters.  Lay 1 quarter on a flat side.  Start chopping from pointed tip of cabbage and slightly shift cabbage (or knife) after each cut, so that you create a new edge on the cabbage with each cut.  This helps create shorter shreds, rather than long shreds.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
