Canning Coleslaw


     If you have never heard of canning coleslaw you are not alone. I had never heard of it either, I mean isn’t it fermenting? Won’t it explode? The only recipe I have ever tried for making coleslaw is making it with salt and leaving it to ferment. Lots of good probiotics and it is quite sour and tasty but this one from  Chickens In The Road is canned with a syrup made from vinegar, sugar  and a couple of spices and evidently it can be water bath canned or even frozen for food storage. Cabbage  was under 30 cents a pound since St. Patrick’s day was coming soon so I bought a few heads and plan to try this coleslaw recipe and can some in the water bath canner.  I really love coleslaw on sloppy Joe sandwiches and this one looks and sounds like the perfect one for it.
