Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, with homegrown cabbage and onions

They're a bit of work, but worth it.

I haven't made them for thirty years. They look delicious!

Oh gosh- they were! I have another pan of four that I'm going to freeze. I used the Fanny Farmer Cookbook recipes (ca. 1981), but I added cumin and a dash of Indonesian cinnamon to the filling, along with a LOT more paprika and a knife tip of fresh garlic, as well as some parsley. I also put in a couple of dashes of Hungarian Half-sharp paprika, which is just like cayenne. The sauce I made almost the same except that it also got a healthy dose of paprika, and then because it needed it, I put in around 1-2 tablespoons of wine vinegar. They were full of flavor and a little spicy and all around delicious. The only thing I would change for next time would be to go with my gut next time and add an egg to the filling for binding. Yum! And I get to have them again some time!

Yum! I made cabbage rolls for the first time ever this fall and it WAS a lot of work - but worth it, as you said. We ate one pan and froze three more, and last week we ate the last of them. Sigh.

I have to say your rolls are much neater than mine were...

Gosh, those look great! I remember having stuffed cabbage rolls, and stuffed green peppers, and porcupine balls, growing up. Hey! I think I even have that cookbook! I'll have to look, and then try your adaptation of it.

Yum!

Miriam- the trick is using leaves from a really big cabbage!

Go for it Jules- and let me know how they turn out! Just one dash of cinnamon, though- it doesn't take much to overpower the paprika.

I would love a copy of the Stuffed Cabbage Rolls recipe, if you have time to share. Unfortunately I don't have the cookbook and my local library doesn't have a great selection of the books I'm interested in...Thanks a bunch!
