Cold Slaw


  • 1 nice fresh cabbage
  • 1/4 pound of butter
  • 1/2 pint of water
  • 1 large table-spoonful of vinegar
  • 1 salt-spoon of salt
  • cayenne


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. Give this a boil up, and pour it hot upon the cabbage.

Send it to table as soon as it is cold.
