I get real excited when the cabbage heads in the garden are ready to harvest, so we can enjoy some of our favorite cabbage recipes. One of our favorite recipes is our Old Fashioned Creamed Cabbage, it is a very simple dish but has amazing flavor that comes through with a creamy sauce. There is no doubt that this is a delicious comforting vegetable dish.

  1. The first time I enjoyed creamed cabbage was on the Caribbean island of Antigua. The vegetable growing season is very short with plenty of vegetables on that island. I enjoyed the creamed cabbage very much and it was 'new cabbage' too. It was served in a beautiful silver chafing dish to keep it warm-hot.

    I have not prepared creamed cabbage, but after seeing this recipe, I will prepare it very soon.

  2. I have never had Creamed Cabbage, Miz Helen, but I know I would love it.

  3. I've never heard of creamed cabbage but it sure looks and sounds amazing! Pinned this baby! Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party. Have a great week.
