My husbands ancestry is German so this recipe comes out of his families vault.

• 3 lb. cabbage
• 4 oz. jar of chopped Pimentos
• ½ C Chopped Green Pepper
• ½ C Chopped Onion
• ¾ C Sugar
• 1 t salt

Mix ingredients and let set 1 hour. Drain off any accumulated juice and pour dressing over the vegetable mix. Stir dressing in until well blended and refrigerate for at least 1 day before serving. Slaw will keep for about 3 weeks.

• 1 t Celery Seed
• ½ C Vinegar
• ½ C Oil

Mix Celery Seed, Vinegar and Oil until blended

    Thanks all for the comments! Mary, to be honest, we never had enough to last 3 weeks. It usually gets eaten in less that 2 but during that time it is great!
