A few nice recipes images I found:

I got this book (Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It) from the library and I’ve made a few recipes from it. I’ve been making a lot of these things for years so they weren’t new. I was really suprized by the homemade ketchup – I usually hate homemade ketchup but this is great. Of course I changed the recipe a bit.

Cabbage Salad (Recipe)
Image by Ruthieki
This cabbage salad with ramen noodles is a longstanding favorite in my family. I often make this for pot-lucks, where it is always a hit and I am usually besieged with recipe requests. As an added bonus, the ingredients to this recipe are very inexpensive and easily found at most grocery stores.
1/2 head red cabbage (or green, or a combo)
4 green onions
1/2 cup roasted almonds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 package of ramen noodles (I like chicken flavored)
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup vinegar
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
Secret ingredient: the flavor packet from the ramen.
Chop the cabbage and green onions fine. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl, and pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture.
Chop the almonds, and toast them with the sesame seeds in a frying pan for a few minutes
Crunch up the ramen noodles, and immediately before serving, toss the noodles, nuts and seeds into the salad.
If you are bringing this salad to a party, pack the ramen and nuts together in a ziplock, and wait to toss them into the salad until right before the salad is served. The noodles get soggy if they sit in the dressing too long, which ruins the salad, in my opinion.
This recipe is easily scaled up or down, and the amounts listed above are approximate. Experiment! Enjoy! Chomp!
