Why do I always think of Cabbage and Potatoes as a winter dish? Now is the time when the cabbage is fresh in the garden and the new potatoes are just coming out of the ground.
Cabbage and Potatoes
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (about 1-inch)
3/4 pound green cabbage, sliced thin
1/2 +4 tablespoons water
1/2 cup milk
3 green onions, chopped
3/4 stick unsalted butter, softened
Cook potatoes in salted water; drain and mash and set aside. Combine cabbage and water in a large skillet. Cook about 15 minutes or until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Combine potatoes and cabbage. Combine milk, onions, and 3/4 of the softened butter in a medium saucepan and heat to a boil; stir and pour over cabbage and potato mixture. Stir to combine all ingredients. Place in a bowl. Make a well in the center of mixture; melt remaining butter and pour into well. Serve hot.
