this post is all out of order but the recipe is at the end......
|I used the exact ingredients as the recipe called for
except I hand cut and grated the vegetables as I don't have a blender.
I also mixed the dressing ingredients in the cole slaw bowl
before I added the vegetables.
|a full recipe makes a lot - this bowl holds 13 cups and and it
is all the way full.
I've talked about Jo Ann York before. I read at least one magazine article about her
and remember seeing her on TV back in the late 70s.
http://healingwoman.blogspot.com/ left me a comment last week
and asked if I by chance had Jo Ann's cole slaw recipe.
Well, I did not but it got me thinking about Jo Ann again.
I've looked for this little paperbook book of hers for a while
but it usually is listed for a crazy high price.
When I looked last week, I found one
on Amazon for less than $8 so I bought it.
The seller got it to me so fast too.
Anyway, I tried the cole slaw recipe first.
I only had 1 pound of cabbage so I made just a half batch
and it is a great recipe, the kind of slaw we like.
It is not a heavy-dressed or super sweet slaw,
but is dressed just enough and the vegetables are just right.
We liked it so much, I made a half recipe on Thursday and then a full recipe today.
A little more about Jo Ann York,
this book was about how she fed her family of 4 for just
$16 a week, that translates to about $67 in 2011 dollars.
I plan on cooking more of her recipes and will let you know how it goes.
