  • 1 onion , larger than a walnut, chopped
  • 1 tbsp shortening (or oleo)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp caraway seed (or to taste) (optional)
  • 2 tsp flour


  1. Brown the onion in the shortening, only to a golden color. Do not brown.
  2. Add the water, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil. (This liquid is just enough for this size cabbage.).
  3. Put cabbage in; sprinkle with caraway seed if you wish.
  4. Boil for 1/2 hour.
  5. Sprinkle with flour. Stir it up and boil just a few seconds for the flour to dissolve.
  6. Grandmother notes that you shouldn't put cooked cabbage in the freezer - just in box. (Box is the old-time short way of saying icebox - we would say refrigerator!).
