Taste like the cabbage I fell in love with as a youth. The cabbage was tender and sweet (where'd that come from?) I used maple bacon and just loved this recipe.

Cooked it for 3 hours and instead of regular bacon. I used jawls bacon. No flour. Tasted great!

Loved it. Added a bit of garlic powder, tomato paste, and a dash of hot sauce. Also I used beef stock instead of water. Freezes well so make a ton of it.

Cooked about four hours, used just a bit less bacon. Very tasty! Reminded me of when my Mom cooked cabbage many years ago.

Yummy. Takes time but worth the effort!
