I agree with the strong memories of the 1950’s as well, especially on a Friday night visiting my grandmother and all of the wonderful smells in the hallways of the building she lived in.
When I opened the door to her apartment, I would run into the kitchen, and she would ask me if I wanted a taste of something, before diner was served, especially some just made, room temperature chopped liver on a small piece off fresh bread,

I love cabbage in so many ways! A favorite is to boil a ham bone, add extra chopped ham, stock, veggies - carrots, celery, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, spices, barley and lots of chopped cabbage at the end. Spices are bay, garlic, paprika (sweet as well as smoked) and a few others. Really delicious and healthy. Love it in fried rice, twice cooked pork, with corned beef and on and on. Slaw too and sauerkraut.

Wow.

Impressed.

You answered my question before I asked it. Which was going to be:

what do I do with the rest of the cabbage that was left after I used the outer leaves for stuffing? Make those dumplins.

Pierogi with cabbage filling.

Making grautrunzins used to be a regular thing with us - we love them & it’s great to have some in the freezer. They’re good with a brown gravy over them. The recipe came from H’s auntie who was of German descent (and married a Greek).

DH is in the dog house and may never get out, so will from here on refer to him as H only :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::scream_cat:

Once my grandmother made a traditional polish dish - dumplings with cabbage and potatoes, I know how it sounds but it was really delicious!

Similar to the Greek Lahanodolmades, the Northern Romanians stuff their cabbage with:

Ground pork or ground Lamb or a combo
Onion
Long grain rice
finely chopped garlic
fresh parsley
fresh dill
ground cumin
salt
freshly ground black pepper
fresh mint herb
Evoo from Greece Works best
finely diced or chopped onion or leek or shallot

Thank you and have a lovely weekend.
