I love just about everything about fall but one of my favorite things is to watch our garden to continue to thrive in coastal North Carolina. Here are some pictures of some of the wonderful produce that is continuing to thrive for us. Peppers grow easily for us in the Coastal Carolinas and my friend Katherine shared with me her black beauty peppers and they are truly beautiful and delicious!
Radishes love the sandy soil as well and here is a picture of one peeking through the soil ready for a lovely supper.
Last but not least the cabbages just absolutely love fall and love the cool fall evenings and I cannot wait to make one of my favorite dishes which is just simply boiled cabbage with a bit of bacon in it. I used to put an entire stick of butter in the pot but I have a trick or two over time so here is my daughter’s favorite cabbage recipe that I make.
Julie’s Favorite Boiled Cabbage
Place 2 tbsp. butter melted in the bottom of a pot.
Place 1 head of cabbage washed and chopped in on top of the butter.
Pour in approximately 2 cups of chicken broth (homemade broth is fine ;)…).
Fry about 4 to 6 pieces of bacon and then…
place them crumbled up on top of cabbage and stir in.
Salt and pepper to taste. Cabbage should be cooked until slightly limp and translucent.
This is such a delicious dish best served with corned beef cabbage or bratwurst on a nice crisp, cool fall evening!
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by our Lil’ Suburban Homestead!
