Some fall favorites


Each fall we look forward to driving up to the North Carolina mountains to enjoy the changing scenery and to purchase some of our fall favorites. One of our favorite things to buy are the large heads of mountain cabbage. We eat coleslaw all year long and I have quite a few different recipes that we enjoy. Here are links to a few of them:

Ginger Bacon Slaw

Ray's Coleslaw

Mennonite Girls Cole Slaw
My son-in-law who does not care for mayonnaise liked this one. It also keeps very well.

We also enjoy cabbage soup, bierocks, and cabbage rolls. I tried something new when I made cabbage rolls and thought I would share the tip here in case it might be of help to someone else. I removed a few outer leaves from a head of cabbage that we purchased recently and steamed them for a couple of minutes in the microwave, cooled them, and then froze them. I removed them from the freezer a few days ago and used them to make cabbage rolls and they worked just fine. I like to use fairly lean ground beef in the cabbage rolls and I don't always have any on hand so it was good to know that the cabbage leaves freeze well and can be used at a later time. You can also prepare the cabbage rolls and freeze them to cook at a later time.

Here's an idea for one of our more recent fall favorites. Did you know that if you mix peanuts and candy corn and eat them together it tastes like a Payday candy bar? It's really a good combination.

I was also surprised when I went to purchase a bag of candy corn that there are quite a few flavors to choose from now. One of the most unusual that I saw was Carmel Macchiato. Have you tried any unusual flavors of candy corn? Do you have any favorite cabbage recipes?

    My daughter does not care for mayonnaise either, so I will try the Mennonite girls’ slaw recipe. Thanks.

    I tried the slaw without mayonnaise. It was good, but I just like mayo on such things. 🙂 Will try it again, but will probably cut down the oil a little bit.
