Purple Cabbage!

This is the first year that I have successfully grown cabbage!  WooHoo!
Both Green Cabbage and Purple Cabbage.
And boy is the purple cabbage....PURPLE

One of our new crockpot favorites is
Smokey Hobo Crockpot:
1 head of Cabbage
1 bag of mini carrots, or about 5 carrots cut into chunks
5 potatoes washed and cut into chunks
1 onion cut into chunks
1 ring of Kielbasa
1 cup water or stock
salt, pepper, spices to taste
Layer veggies, salting and peppering on every level.
Cut Kielbasa into 2 inch chunks and place on the top.
Add stock / water down one side of the crockpot.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for about 3 hours.
(Or until the veggies are tender and the smell is making your family hungry!)
We eat it with a little ketchup on top after serving.
Serves about 6 (our our family twice!)
By the way, if you use purple will turn the broth and any potatoes that it is sitting against purple!!
