Chop the cabbage very fine, thicken the water with oatmeal, put in the cabbage and butter, or dripping; season and simmer for 1 1/2 hour. It can be made sooner by blanching and mashing the greens, adding any good liquor that a joint has been boiled in, and then further thicken with bread or pounded biscuit.
Time: 1 1/2 hour.
Seasonable all the year, but more suitable in winter.
Sufficient for 8 persons.
