  • Amish Freezer Slaw...

    Has anyone made this? I found the recipe on Pinterest and it looks like this:

    https://i.pinimg.com/236x/a9/0d/49/a90d49df00e186929a5b08f9e8fc5890.jpg

    I've bought cabbage and carrots and am going to try it but I wondered if anyone here has made this in the past. They say that it stays crisp but I don't understand how that can happen in it's frozen. I don't have a lot of space in my freezer thanks to apricots, rhubarb and plums so I'm wondering how long it would keep just in the fridge.

    I love salads but usually settle for something easy rather than making coleslaw every night.

    So... anyone know about this coleslaw recipe?
    I really want a smoke detector that shuts off as soon as I shout…“I’M ONLY COOKING!!”

      Never made it or even heard of it. But I would think that when you defrost it that the cabbage would go limp ??? Cabbage has a lot of water . I don't know, but let us know what happens when you defrost it.

        I Googled "Amish Freezer Slaw" to look at some recipes, along with reviews. Taste of Home has a "Freezer Slaw" as does Allrecipes, and Allecipes has an Amish Freezer slaw. The ratings looked fairly good; I will consider making a batch when cabbage goes on sale. Every year we freeze Cucumber Slaw. It's simply cucumber and onions with a vinegar/sugar/celery seed dressing, much like the dressing for the Amish Freezer Slaw. The cucumbers lose some of their crispness after thawing, but that's OK with us--we really enjoy it, especially with fish dinners.

          I haven't seen the Cucumber slaw, Home buddy. My Mum used to slice up cucumber and onion and douse it with brown vinegar and sugar. I loved it, especially when the cucumber went limp. I haven't thought about that salad item for years... decades even *LOL*

          I did make the coleslaw but didn't put it into jars. I just made up the dressing in a smaller quantity and put it into a glass bowl. It tasted wonderful and I found a review for the recipe that said he keeps in the fridge for 5-7 days so that suits me.

          The interesting things about the Amish Freezer Slaw is that I didn't think the Amish people used electricity in their homes so I doubted that they would be freezing coleslaw.

              " The interesting things about the Amish Freezer Slaw is that I didn't think the Amish people used electricity in their homes so I doubted that they would be freezing coleslaw. "

              Some Amish use generators to power things like washing machines , refrigerators. Also they are allowed to use machinery that use gas for power. Some things can be converted from electric to gas
              power. At least that's what I read on the internet.

                  Question about what kind of onions did you use, does the recipe specify what kind, I didn't notice.
                  sweet yellow onions, red onions, regular onions ??

                      Sabine, I've always used "regular" onions (that I also call yellow onions). Cheap, "everyday" onions that I usually buy in a 3 lb. bag.
