Canned Coleslaw

Harvested my cabbage out of the garden today and decided to make some canned coleslaw, I know your probably wondering how do you do that but I found a recipe and modified it to fit my needs. I must admit that it turned out really good and the flavor is rather good. Here is what I used to make mine.

1 medium head cabbage
1 small head red cabbage
1 large carrot
1 green pepper (red, yellow or green)
1 small onion
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup vinegar
¼ cup water
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds

Shred together vegetables. Add the salt. Let stand 1 hour.


Drain water from vegetables. (I also rinse and drain.) Boil syrup ingredients together for 1 minute. Cool.


Pack into quart jars and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.


This slaw may be drained before use and mayonnaise added, or used as is.


I quadrupled the ingredients and ended up with 8 quarts of coleslaw.

Im still new to the whole canning thing and this was rather simple to make and process. I did have a jar that didn’t seal but that is something that happens while canning.
