1½ cups water
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 green onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 cup cabbage, roughly chopped into large pieces
1 carrot, chopped
½ cup cauliflower, chopped
1 potato, cut into small cubes
- Crush the garlic, salt, and pepper together in a lemper.
- Heat water; add garlic mixure and sugar.

savoy cabbage give the best flavor.
