Wonderful slaw recipe passed down from my Grandmother's cook, Vernell. It's similar to a sweet and sour cabbage recipe, and will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Great served with beef brisket. Best made a day or more before serving.

  • In a separate microwave safe bowl, combine the remaining sugar, oil, vinegar, mustard, celery seed and pepper. Stir to blend in the sugar, then heat until boiling in the microwave, about 3 minutes. Immediately, but carefully pour the boiling mixture over the cabbage. Toss with a wooden or plastic utensil to evenly coat the cabbage.

  • Let stand out on the counter for several hours, stirring occasionally. Cover and refrigerate. Toss before serving, and serve with a slotted spoon.
