About 15 years ago Country Woman was having an anniversary special which included the most requested recipe ever. It was this one! I can't believe that isn't written here! It sounded so simple and boring that I couldn't imagine it would taste good, but how could I not try it if thousands asked for reprints of it? It is AMAZING. Shocking but true. I have made it many times for skeptical friends and all have loved it.
Beware, I have had this fail one or two times because the cabbage I used was soooo watery for some reason. When cooked down, it just filled the pot with water and I had to pour much out, taking the yummy flavour of the bacon drippings with it. So those times it tasted awful. No way of knowing if your cabbage is full of moisture until you begin cooking though. But it has only failed twice and I've made it oodles of times.
