Andrea's Cole Slaw Recipe

We had a TON of really great cooks in our family when I was growing up.  My Aunt Lil (far right) was the queen of fried fish, popcorn balls and apple pan pie.  A very close second was my cousin, Andrea (center) who was equally as famous for her brownies and cole slaw.  Here's her cole slaw recipe:

1 medium head cabbage - shredded
2 carrots - grated

Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar


1 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup salad oil
1 cup sugar

Combine dressing ingredients and boil three minutes.  Add to cabbage mixture, cover and let stand overnight in the fridge.  This salad will keep crisp for a VERY long time.
