DON'T eat them. or when you pull your britches

Yep, I too have used potato, chunked up. They are dark when done and foul tasting just as you said. Even my girlfriend wouldn't eat them, that's all that was left after I was done :lol:

It is anybody's regular slaw recipe but use shaved swamp cabbage instead and if you vinager and a little lemon juice it keep it from turning brown and the lemon juice itself cooks just slightly so it won't cause the gas like you would get if you eat RAW swamp cabbage ..............


As for the gas, cowboys like open range so it won't matter anyway! :lol: :lol:

You guys asked for something I never thought about for SA but I'm guessing most airboaters, or at least a lot of them, still carry axes, knives and saws on board. Might be worth another Topic in with the Guns Topics. ;)

Too many folks trying too hard to be rednecks. I prefer coleslaw from Publix.

Great video Jeff! I love to fry up some bacon, throw in some chopped onion, then cook the cabbage in with it! Simple, and tasty!

Never thought about that...I promise I ain't ate any since it became a protected tree :D

Just to be correct, the Sable Palm is NOT classified as a tree and any legislation that identifies it as such bears close scrutiny. ALL Palms are classified as a grass. Now, I have seen folks around here fined for not cutting their grass............,.,., Seems interesting to me. Grinn ! ! ! :stirpot:
