Coleslaw For Freezing

1 medium head cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, grated
1 green pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon salt

Mix salt and cabbage; let stand one hour, squeeze out excess moisture, add carrot and pepper. While cabbage is standing, make dressing.


1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon celery seed
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon whole mustard seed

Combine ingredients and boil one minute. Cool to lukewarm; pour over slaw mixture. Put into container, cover, and seal. Freeze.

This thaws in just a few minutes for serving and leftover slaw may be refrozen.
