Fried Cabbage and Bacon
1) Cut the cabbage into quarter. Remove any wilted and discolored outer leaves and cut out the core from the cabbage pieces. Cut the cabbage into a large 1-inch cubes.
2) Cook the bacon in a 4-quart pot over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon to paper towels to drain.
There should be about ½ cup of bacon drippings in the pan. Add the cabbage to these drippings and cook without stirring until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes.
Add the water, sugar, salt, and pepper and cook covered until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes.
Crumble the cooked bacon into the cabbage and serve hot.
