My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Country Fried Cabbage

The next time you need something to serve with that pork roast, have a skillet of Country Fried Cabbage. I love cabbage any way you fix it. I use the cabbage that I froze last fall and it works great. There were six bags of cabbage hidden under the peaches and blueberries.

In a heavy skillet, fry 4 strips of bacon. Remove when crisp and set aside. Core the cabbage and divide into quarters. Place in the skillet, cooking over a medium flame. Add a pinch of sugar. Salt and pepper to taste. Gently stir, allowing the cabbage to wilt and brown. Garnish with the crumbled bacon.

Don't forget the cornbread.


  1. I love fried cabbage! I did not know to freeze cabbage however, a great solution for small families and a large head of cabbage. Thanks.

  2. I didn't know you could freeze cabbage -- except in freezer slaw. How do you do this? Thank you Bev! :)

  3. Quarter or rough chop your cabbage and place on a large sheet pan. Put it in the freezer until frozen solid. Remove from pan place in a zip lock bag and back in the freezer. Take out what you need for whatever you're making.

  4. Bev...back froze cabbage? How did you do that?...:)JP

  5. I did not know you could freeze cabbage. I thought it would get watery. I LOVE fried cabbage. I've never used bacon though. I chop in onion, squash, celery, carrot and throw in some mrs. dash and fry til tender-crisp. YUM!

  6. Bev, PLEASE write a post on how to freeze cabbage. I never knew you could freeze it!! Looks like the texture, etc. would be gone when thawing ... of course, it wouldn't matter with fried cabbage, which I love. Please tell us how you do it. Thanks, Friend.
