Cooking Instructions German Creamy Savoy Cabbage

– Cut off the hard parts of the cabbage.
– Chop onion in fine pieces.
– Remove the darker leaves and place them aside.
– Take the lighter leaves from the inside (that should be 1/3 of the cabbage) and cut them into small pieces: first cut the cabbage in half, then quarters, so you will get fine stripes.

– Place the chopped pieces into a pan, add onions, the spices and the heavy cream/milk.
– Mix well, let cook on low to medium heat until the cabbage is soft. Then puree the cabbage with a stick mixer until you get a fine puree.
– Take the darker leaves of the cabbage and chop them into small pieces as well.
– Melt butter, add dark leaves with salt, sugar and some water (about 5 tbsp), cover with a lid and let simmer for about 5 min or until the leaves are soft and tender.
– Combine the puree with the darker cabbage leaves and mix well.
