Cuisine: Hearty Cabbage Stew

You will not find an easier recipe. It is truly one of those, "Set it and forget it" varieties. I made this for The S. Kitchen presents...Sing for Your Supper, and it definitely was a smashing success. I kicked it up a notch, as I have to do with German food, by adding a few key spices I was able to turn this from drab cabbage into a stunningly complex stew. Enjoy!

You Will Need:
1 head green cabbage, shredded
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 head fennel thinly sliced
3 carrots, cubed
5 potatoes (red are best), cubed
1 jalapeno, cored and seeded and finely diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp ajwain seeds (or caraway seeds if you don't have ajwain)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp finely ground pepper
7 saffron threads
1 TBSP and 1 1/2 tsp vegetable base
8 springs Italian parslet
2 bay leaves
6 cups water

What To Do:
Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot. Simmer covered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Serve.
