When I was a girl during the Depression, we had enough cabbages to sink a ship! This was a family favorite my mother made often. After I was married, I served these potatoes to family and friends as a side dish to pork. I still make them for potlucks (I attend two of them a month), and everyone likes them. I have three grown children—plus five grandchildren whom I keep supplied with frozen yogurt and cookies!
