George asked what to do with an excess of cabbage.
Make Wurst-Kohl Eintopf

1 head cabbage cut into 8 pieces
4 to 5 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
A package of HEALTHY CHOICE fat-free sausage 
1 large onion, diced
1 cup water
Pepper to taste

In a large saucepan saute onion in a bit of broth until nicely limp.
Add water.  Arrange cabbage in bottom of pan, top with potatoes.
Each pkg of sausage has two big pieces; cut each in fourths.  Cover 
tightly and simmer very slowly about 35 minutes.  Add a bit of water 
or broth if cabbage wants to brown.  Serves 4 to 6.
          OR, make German cabbage

1 head cabbage shredded
1 TBS canola oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 or 2 tart apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 (or more) pepper
2 whole cloves
Juice of half lemon

Heat oil in large saucepan, saute onion and apples for 3 or 4 
minutes.  Add rest of ingredients except cabbage.  Stir and bring to 
boil.  Add cabbage, cover, and simmer for 45 until tender.  CAN BE 

 Pat (who can't cook with salt or more than a bit of fat) but lives 
in a German community where cabbage is taken very seriously.
