roxy

i have actually made your slaw twice now. the first time it was excelent of course but the next day it became very watery. which is normal for the cabbage to render out some water overnight.

the second time i did just what tucciim said. 2 table spoons of salt in a colander let it sit for about 2 hours and it pulled out a lot of water. then rinsed it and blotted dry on some papaer towels. wish i had a salad spinner. i didn't think it made the cabbage soggy or less cruncy than it would been if it was sitting in all that extra water and juice.

just my oppinion.

great slaw reciepe roxy thanks again.

where is that new kick up version posted?

i made this over the weekend and it was excellent. I did make some subs. to thicken it up a little bit i substituted one cup of plain yogurt for a cup of buttermilk. it was still quit tangy (yogurt has some tang of it's own).

also tossed in a tsp of celery salt and a few shakes of celery seed. the celery seed really brings a "fresh" taste to things.

i forgot to chop up the pickle for it, but i found the pickle juice added enough of the pickle flavor.

thanks roxy, this made it into the "keeper" folder for my house.

p.s. i should add that i didn't rinse the cabbage. pulled the outside 2 leaves and chopped it up. after sitting over night it BARELY had to be stirred. (got the yogurt trick from alton brown. his recipie for 'slaw is very close to this one)

Glad you like the recipe.

I will give that yogurt idea of your a try as I sure do love yogurt. Did you strain the yogurt to make a yogurt cheese or just straight up..?

I got to say, to have my name and Alton Browns mentioned in the same breath is one of the greatest compliments I have ever received. Wink

I had the opportunity to be compared to Mario Batali awhile back. I'm paraphrasing, but it was something like, "His gut is as big as Mario Batali's!" Wink

Mike:

Mine used to be like Mario's but over the last month and a half with all with work I have been doing here at the new place I have lost a belt size or two and I can see my toes without having to lean forward, dispite all the BBQ I have been eating. Wink

Sure do wish my wallet was as big as his... Embarassed

straight up. it's certainly not as tangy as buttermilk but i found the consistancy tradeoff worth it. you could always toss in some powdered buttermilk if you miss that flavor.

Your slaw recipe looks great! I'm going to try it this weekend. I have a quick question:

What is the difference between the "white" sugar and the "sugar" that is listed in the recipe?

Thanks!

Well dang, you just pointed out a big mistak I made in that recipe post. That is supposed to be a tbsp of celery seed not sugar...

Thanks.

Hehehe. We all make mistakes. My problem is that if I do it at work (I work at a restaurant), it makes me look like a A-hole.

I like to do the same thing but did not have too much pickle in the recipe as some folks dont care for too much, if there is such a thing as too much pickle... Wink

They do add a nice flavour and extra crunch.

Not too sure as I always cut fresh cabbages. I would think that maybe 2 or 3 bags would equal a good sized cabbage.
