Recipe: Hot Slaw

If a slightly sour flavor is desired in a vegetable dish, hot slaw will undoubtedly appeal to the taste.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  4 c. cabbage
  •  1 c. water
  •  2 Tb. butter
  •  1 Tb. flour
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  1/3 c. vinegar
  •  1 egg

Slice the cabbage very fine with a sharp knife or a cabbage cutter. Put it in a Saucepan, add the water, and allow it to cook until the water is about half evaporated. Melt the butter in a pan and to it add the flour, salt, and vinegar. Then stir the beaten egg in quickly and pour this Sauce over the cabbage at once. Allow the mixture to cook until the Sauce has thickened, stirring constantly to prevent the curding of the egg. Serve hot.
