OK, so I am one of those people who hate throwing food out. And the other day I ran out of potatoes when I wanted a potato pancake (and seriously, when do I ever NOT want a potato pancake?), so I thought to myself, Hey, this cabbage core is about the same texture as a potato, why the heck not?
So I grated it up, added salt, flour, and egg, and voila: cabbage pancakes. They were good!
