  • cayenne

Instructions

Take cabbage, wash and drain it, and cut off all the stalk. Shave down the head into very small slips, with a cabbage cutter, or a very sharp knife. It must be done evenly and nicely. Put it into a deep china dish, and prepare for it the following dressing. Melt butter in a sauce-pan, with water, vinegar, salt, and a little cayenne.
