Wartime Wednesday: Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
With meat being rationed, recipes that were heavily vegetarian became popular. Found in Better Meals in Wartime, this recipe claims to be from Sweden:
½ pound raw veal, pork, or beef, ground
1 small onion
1/8 C grated carrot
½ t pepper
1 t salt
½ C bread crumbs softened in ¼ C warm milk
1 medium-sized cabbage
Remove 10 outer leaves from cabbage and scald them. Then chop enough of the remaining cabbage to make one cup. Mix this with the meat, onion, carrot, seasons and crumbs. Form the mixture into 10 small rolls.
Place one roll in each cabbage leaf, and roll up. Secure the rolls tightly with toothpicks which can be removed before serving. Place folded side down in a kettle. Half cover with boiling water and simmer for an hour. If you like you may use half fresh stewed tomatoes or tomato juice and half water. These rolls may be served plain, with sour cream or tomato sauce.
May 1942: Geneva Alexander flees Philadelphia and joins the USO to escape the engagement her parents have arranged for her, only to wind up as the number one suspect in her betrothed’s murder investigation. Diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease, she must find the real killer before she loses her sight…or is convicted for a crime she didn’t commit.
Set in the early days of America’s entry into WWII and featuring cameo appearances from Hollywood stars, Murder of Convenience is a tribute to individuals who served on the home front, especially those who did so in spite of personal difficulties, reminding us that service always comes as a result of sacrifice. Betrayal, blackmail, and a barrage of unanswered questions… Murder of Convenience is the first the exciting new “Women of Courage” series.
