 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      pounds        cabbage head -- Green
      1/2  pound         bacon -- sliced
      1/2  cup           water
    1      tablespoon    sugar
    1      tablespoon    salt
      1/2  teaspoon      black pepper -- freshly ground
 
 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 dice.
 
 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 1/2 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.
