Sweet and Sour Coleslaw 
May 20, 2012 6:11 pm 
This blog has become a way for me to go back over memories of a different time and place, while most will be family recipes, some are from dear friends passed to me when i begged and pleaded, this recipe is one just like that, in honor of Betty, a dear friend and supporter for Years:

Sweet and Sour Cole Slaw:

1 medium head cabbage  sliced very thinly into ribbons
1 Medium Bell Pepper sliced thinly into slivers
1 Red (or Purple) Onion Sliced into thin slivers
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Seasoned Rice Vinegar  ( you can use white, or cider, but i think the rice is better)
1/4 Cup Light Oil-I use canola
1 Tsp Celery Seed
1 Tsp Dry Mustard
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Black Pepper

Layer Onion, Cabbage and peppers in large glass bowl; Boil Vinegar, Seasonings, and oil and sugar, Pour over cabbage layer mixture and let set 24 hours in refrigerator, covered.  Truly Excellent and a true Ozark Memory.

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
