When I got married, my mother and sister gave me a gift that I have treasured and kept all these years. They asked the guests at my bridal shower to provide them with a recipe to share with me. That was thirty years ago (yes, I said “thirty”) and I still have that original recipe book to this day. I refer to it frequently, especially treasuring the worn, yellowed pages.
Peel cabbage leaves off cabbage, trying to keep leaves as intact as possible.
Do not worry if some leaves break; you will be able to fit them onto the glass in pieces if you need to. When entire glass is covered, secure the leaves with a string.This could be anything of your choice. I used oven string for these pictures, but you could use raffia, ribbon or twine.
Once the cabbage leaves are tied, bend the tops of the leaves down so they meet the top of the glass.
If some of the jars are tall, just place some rolled up paper towels or tin foil at the bottom. This will help the vegetables stay just above the top of the jar.
Arrange the vegetables of your choice in the jars, so they are just above the tip. This will make it easier for your guests to take it out.
Place them together with the dip. It looks beautiful and I promise your guests will be impressed!
