How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds

Instead of throwing out the pumpkin seeds after a pumpkin carving session, try roasting them as a delicious snack instead! Rinse the seeds under cold running water before drying them and baking them in the oven until they're golden brown. You can add any sort of seasonings you desire, turning your pumpkin seeds into a spicy, sweet, or simply flavorful treat.


[Edit]Removing the Seeds from the Pumpkin

  1. Remove the top of the pumpkin to access the seeds. If you haven’t already done so, use a sharp cutting knife to cut a circle around the pumpkin’s stem. Make sure the lid is wide enough for your hand to fit through comfortably. Remove the lid once you’re done cutting it.[1]

  2. Use a large spoon to scoop the seeds from the pumpkin. The bigger the spoon, the more seeds you’ll be able to remove at once. Scrape the sides of the pumpkin to loosen the seeds and pulp, taking time to scoop out as many seeds as possible.[2]

    • You can also use your hands or an object from a pumpkin carving kit.
  3. Place all of the seeds and pulp in a large bowl. As you’re scooping out the seeds, place the seeds and pulp in a bowl big enough to hold everything. Remove large pieces of pulp from the seeds as you’re placing them in the bowl, but don’t worry about separating every single string.[3]

    • If you’re removing the seeds from a smaller pumpkin, you may not need as large of a bowl.

[Edit]Washing and Drying the Seeds

  1. Set the seeds in a colander and rinse them under cold water. This will help loosen the pulp and strings from the seeds, making it easier to clean them. Hold the colander full of seeds under the running water, using your hands to move the seeds around gently.[4]

  2. Pull the seeds out of the colander and place them on a towel. Once the seeds are mostly clean, take them out of the colander and set them on a clean kitchen towel. If there are any big strings still attached to the seeds, pull these off if possible.[5]

    • You can also place the seeds on paper towels, though they may stick.
  3. Pat the seeds dry using the kitchen towel. Spread the seeds out on the towel and gently blot the seeds to ensure they’re as dry as possible. Place the seeds in a bowl once they’re dry.[6]

    • Instead of blotting the seeds, you can also shake them in the colander to remove excess water.
    • If the seeds are still damp when they go in the oven, they won’t roast well due to the moisture.

[Edit]Adding Seasonings

  1. Toss the seeds with oil or butter. Once the clean, dry seeds are in a bowl, pour cooking oil or melted butter into the bowl so that the seeds are lightly covered. Use a large spoon to mix the seeds around with the oil or butter so that each seed is covered evenly.[7]

    • Use canola oil, olive oil, or vegetable oil.
    • How much oil or butter you use will depend on how many pumpkin seeds you’re roasting, but it’s best to start with a small amount—you can always add more.
  2. Add your desired seasonings. These could be seasonings such as Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper—whichever seasonings are your favorite. Sprinkle the desired amount of seasoning into the bowl of pumpkin seeds.[8]

    • Experiment with the type and amount of seasonings, sprinkling in small amounts before adding more.
    • For a simple yet tasty flavor, just add salt and pepper to your pumpkin seeds.
    • Consider adding seasonings like chili powder, Cajun seasoning, or crab seasoning for a stronger flavor.
    • Season with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg for a sweet snack.
  3. Stir the pumpkin seed mixture thoroughly using a large spoon. Stir gently, making sure the pumpkin seeds are evenly coated with oil or butter and your desired seasonings. If you notice that many seeds don’t have seasoning on them, feel free to sprinkle a little bit more into the mixture.[9]

[Edit]Baking the Seeds

  1. Preheat the oven to and prepare a sheet pan. Lining your baking sheet with parchment paper will prevent the seeds from sticking the best, though you can also use aluminum foil. Once the oven is preheated, you're ready to roast your seeds.[10]
    Roast Pumpkin Seeds Step 10 Version 5.jpg
  2. Spread the seeds out evenly on the baking sheet. Pour the seasoned pumpkin seeds onto the lined baking sheet, using a spoon to spread them out. Try to make sure they aren’t clumped together and are laying flat so they roast evenly.[11]
    Roast Pumpkin Seeds Step 11 Version 4.jpg
    • If your pumpkin seeds end up layered on top of one another, try baking them in two smaller batches to promote even roasting.
  3. Bake the seeds for 20-30 minutes, stirring them occasionally. Remove the baking sheet from the oven every 10 minutes and move the seeds around using a wooden spoon or other kitchen utensil—this will help ensure each seed roasts evenly. Once the seeds look browned, they’re done![12]
    Roast Pumpkin Seeds Step 12.jpg
  4. Eat the seeds warm or let them cool to room temperature. Once the seeds have been removed and the oven is turned off, use a spatula to scoop the seeds into a bowl or other serving dish. You can eat them while they’re still warm from the oven, or let them sit for a few minutes until they’re cool.[13]
    Roast Pumpkin Seeds Step 13.jpg
  5. Store the seeds in an airtight container for roughly 1 week. If you want to save your roasted pumpkin seeds, put them in an airtight container such as a mason jar, plastic bag, or piece of tupperware. The seeds will stay fresh for a week or so at room temperature, or you can place them in the freezer for up to a month.[14]
    Roast Pumpkin Seeds Step 14.jpg
    • If placing the seeds in the freezer, they should be in an airtight container as well.
    • Write the date on the container so you remember when the seeds were roasted.

[Edit]Things You'll Need

  • Cutting knife
  • Large spoon
  • Large bowl
  • Colander
  • Towel
  • Oil or butter
  • Seasonings
  • Sheet pan
  • Parchment paper or aluminum foil
  • Airtight container (optional)


This video shows you a different way to roast pumpkin seeds.


  • Place newspaper over your table surfaces for easier cleanup.
  • The pumpkin seeds can also be added to a salad or soup.
  • Add your seasonings after roasting the seeds, if desired.
  • Try using a toaster oven for smaller amounts of pumpkin seeds.

How to Change a Name With the Credit Bureaus

If your legal name changes because of a marriage, divorce or other court order, it is wise to contact the credit bureaus directly to notify them of the change. When you update your name with your creditors, they will automatically notify the credit reporting agencies. But this can take a lot of time, sometimes up to six months or more. This could delay any loan application process or other credit history review. Instead, be proactive and notify the credit reporting agencies yourself of your name change.


[Edit]Notifying the Credit Reporting Agencies

  1. Contact all 3 credit bureaus with your updated information. When you change your name with your creditors and with Social Security, the credit agencies should be automatically notified of the change. However, it’s still a good idea to send them a letter informing them of the change.[1]
    Resign Gracefully Step 12 Version 3.jpg
    • Send your information to Equifax at P.O. Box 740256, Atlanta, GA 30374
    • Get in touch with TransUnion LLC P.O. Box 2000, Chester, PA 19022
    • Let Experian know about your name change. Send information to National Consumer Assistance Center, P.O. Box 2002, Allen, TX 75013.
  2. Include relevant information in the letter. The credit reporting agencies will need specific documentation in order to process your name change. In addition to your previous and new names, they will need your contact information and legal verification of your name change.[2]
    Conduct Research Step 23.jpg
    • Tell them your name. In your letter, let the agency know your full previous full name as well as your new full name.
    • Inform them of a new address. If your address has changed, let the agency know both your old and new legal address.
    • Include your social security number on the letter. To make sure they are changing the information for the correct person, include your social security number on the letter. This number separates you from any other person out there with your same name.
    • Enclose proof of your legal name change. Provide in your envelope any legal documentation you have concerning your name change. This documentation may include a marriage license, official divorce papers or other court order.
  3. Get your credit report. Obtain a copy of your credit report as a follow up to your name change request with the credit bureaus. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), you are entitled to receive a free credit report once every 12 months. You can also purchase a copy of your credit report from the credit reporting agencies.[3].
    Write a Grant Proposal Step 17 Version 3.jpg
    • Visit AnnualCreditReport.com or call 1-877-322-8228. You can also download the Annual Credit Report Request Form and mail it to Annual Credit Report Request Service, P.O. Box 105281, Atlanta, GA 30348-5281.
    • If you have already received your free credit report within the past 12 months, you can purchase a copy from Equifax for $39.95. This includes your credit history from all three credit reporting agencies and your FICO score.[4]
    • You can purchase a credit report from one of the credit reporting agencies for $19.95 from myFICO.[5]
  4. Understand how a name change affects your credit history. Changing your name should not change your credit history. Your credit should just continue to build in your new name. Your old and new names should be included on your credit report.
    Reduce Your Student Loan Payments Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    • When your last name changes after a marriage or divorce, your credit reports automatically update after you notify your creditors of your new name. As creditors update their records, they send the changes to the credit reporting agencies.
    • If you change your whole name, it is possible that creditors will have trouble verifying your credit history. This is because credit reporting agencies identify you not just with your Social Security number, but also with your date of birth and current and previous mailing addresses. When applying for credit under your new name, be sure to provide full and complete identifying information so the credit reporting agencies can link you to your credit history.

[Edit]Notifying Creditors of Name Change

  1. Get a new Social Security card. Do this first because you can use it to officially change your name on other forms of identification. Only your name will change, not your social security number. You will need to include proof of your age, identity, and U.S. citizenship or immigration status.[6]
    Change Your Name in Texas Step 22.jpg
    • Download the Application for a New Social Security Card from the Social Security Administration.
    • Provide proof of your age, such as your birth certificate, a U.S. hospital record of your birth (created at the time of birth), a religious record established before age five showing your age or date of birth, your passport, or a final adoption decree (the adoption decree must show that the birth information was taken from the original.
    • Include proof of identity, such as a U.S. driver's license, a U.S. State-issued non-driver identity card or a U.S. passport.
    • Include evidence of U.S. citizenship, such as a U.S. birth certificate, a U.S. Passport, a consular report of birth, a certificate of citizenship or a certificate of naturalization.
    • If you are not a U.S. citizen, include an unexpired document issued to you by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) showing your immigration status, such as Form I-551, I-94, or I-766. International students or exchange visitors must also submit Form I-20, DS-2019 or a letter from their school or employer authorizing their employment (F-1) or sponsorship (J-1).
  2. Change your name on your driver’s license. Once you have your new Social Security card, you can use it to change your name on your driver’s license. Visit the website of your states Department of Motor Vehicles to learn the process for changing your name on your driver’s license. You will likely need to bring your social security card, your old driver’s license, your birth certificate, and legal verification of your name change, such as a marriage license, official divorce papers or other court order.
    Change Your Name in Texas Step 23.jpg
  3. Change your name with your employer. Your employer’s human resources department will assist you with changing your name on your work documents. You need to do this so that your paychecks and pay stubs reflect your new name. Other work documents, such as your life insurance and retirement plan documents, should also be updated with your new name.
    Get a Job Fast Step 4 Version 2.jpg
  4. Update your name on your financial accounts. Notify all of your banks and creditors of your new name. When you notify your creditors of your new name, they will automatically notify the credit bureaus. Your credit history under your old name will not be erased or changed. Rather, your credit will just continue to build under your new name.
    Close a Bank Account Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • To update your name on your bank accounts, you may need to visit your bank in person. Bring your social security number, driver’s license or passport, and legal verification of your name change, such as a marriage license, divorce decree or court order. Change you name on your credit cards, debit cards and checks. If your name has changed because you got married or divorced, you may need to add or remove a spouse from ownership on your accounts.
    • Notify other creditors of your name change, including issuers of a car loan, line of credit, mortgage, credit cards and other credit accounts.

[Edit]Fixing Errors on Your Credit Report

  1. Contact the credit bureau. If you receive your credit report and you find that your name is incorrectly reported, contact them right away. Send a letter by certified mail, return receipt requested so that you can track it. Include copies of all of your supporting documents, including your identification, Social Security card and legal verification of your name change.[7]
    Obtain a Copy of Your Birth Certificate in Ohio Step 6.jpg
    • Send the letter to Equifax at Equifax Information Services, LLC, P.O. Box 740256, Atlanta, GA 30374.
    • Send the letter to TransUnion at P.O. Box 2000, Chester, PA 19022-2000.
    • Send the letter to Experian at P.O. Box 2002, Allen, TX 75013.
  2. Contact the agency that reporting the inaccurate information. If you have any inaccuracy on your credit report, contact the creditor or other agency who reported the incorrect information. Work with them to update their documentation to accurately reflect your new legal name. Notify them that you have contacted the credit bureaus to report the inaccuracy.[8]

How to Tell Scary Stories

Before horror movies laced with special effects kept people up at night, people got scared the old-fashioned way: through storytelling. Telling scary stories in a way that really scares people can be tough to master, so it does take some practice. You can come up with the perfect story and build suspense to keep your audience hooked on your every word.


[Edit]Coming up with a Story

  1. Read a few classic scary stories to get inspiration. Go to the library or search online for the scariest stories you can find. Pick out 3 to 5 stories that have spooking potential and read them all the way through. Think about how you can make them your own by putting your own twist on them.[1]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 1 Version 2.jpg
    • Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Woman in Black are a few classic scary stories that you could read.
    • The more realistic and recent the story, the scarier it'll be when you tell it. That way, the listeners can relate.
    • Urban legends make excellent scary stories. The danger with using an urban legend, however, is that some of your listeners may have heard variations of it, thus ruining the effect.
  2. Set the story in a recent time period or place. Change the details so that it seems as though the story took place nearby, and recently. If the story took place in a canning factory, but you know there's a pecan factory in your town, switch out that detail (if you can do so without changing the story too much). If you can tie the story to someone you know, that’s even better.[2]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 2 Version 2.jpg
  3. Add in details to make your story sound realistic. Try to put in as many details as you can so your story sounds real, like where exactly it was, what time of day it was, or what the weather was like. If your story is about you, add in your reactions and what you were feeling. If you’re telling it from someone else’s perspective, give details on who they are and how you found out about it. For the big climax of your story, put in an actionable detail that’s super scary.[3]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • For example, you could tell an urban legend about your hometown from the point of view of your grandpa as a child.
    • Or, you could tell a ghost story about how you explored an abandoned building in the countryside.
    • You can also tweak your story to add in details of your current surroundings. For example, if you’re sitting outside on a foggy night, say that your story happened during a foggy night too.
  4. End with a frightening climax to your story. The scariest part of a scary story is not knowing what’s coming next. Think of a large, expressive action that will make your audience jump or get super scared. Emphasize how scared the person in your story was to give your audience a way to relate.[4]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 4 Version 2.jpg
    • If you’re telling a story about a monster, the climax could be that it almost caught you as you were running away.
    • If your story involves ghosts, you could talk about how you saw a dark figure in the hallway that rushed towards you.
    • For stories involving creepy critters, describe the feeling of a snake or a spider crawling up your arm.
  5. Practice saying the story out loud once or twice. There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot a crucial detail in the setup of your story. Spend a few minutes rehearsing how you’re going to tell your story, and make sure you aren’t leaving out any important information.[5]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 5 Version 2.jpg
    • If you need to, you can write out a few notes to help you keep track of the details. However, try to memorize your story before you actually tell it.

[Edit]Building Suspense

  1. Mention some casual details about your story throughout the day. Way before you tell the story (like the day before, or that morning), find a way to mention a few details that are relevant to the story. If you drive by the pecan factory, for example, ask your friends if they've ever been there. If you’re telling a ghost story, ask your friends if they believe in evil spirits.[6]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    • This will make your audience curious and set up a little suspense before you even start telling your story.
  2. Pick a time when you have your audience’s full attention. If you’re going camping, wait until you’re sitting by the bonfire. If you’re at a sleepover, time your story for when your friends are all in the living room. Try to make them sit around you so you can look everyone in the face.[7]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • If your audience members are distracted, your story won’t be as effective.
  3. Act nervous about telling the story to build suspense. When the time draws near to tell the story, start pretending to be anxious. Get the chills here and there, and rub your upper arms as if to warm yourself. Look suddenly behind you, or at the distance, as if you just saw something. Keep doing this kind of stuff subtly until someone notices. At first, brush it off as if it's nothing, but keep up the act.[8]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 8 Version 2.jpg
    • This will intrigue your audience so that they’re dying to know more. It also helps to build suspense, making your story even scarier.

[Edit]Scaring Your Audience

  1. Start telling your story in a slow, quiet voice. Make your voice loud enough so that everyone can hear, but keep your eyes down to make it seem like you’re being forced to talk. A quiet voice can make you seem reluctant, like you don’t want to tell your story but the audience is twisting your arm.[9]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 9.jpg
    • This might even force some people to lean in closer to you, giving you more of their attention.
    • You could start your story with something like, “When I was 5 years old, my grandpa told me the story of the bloody lagoon.”
  2. Add in body language to make your story more realistic. If you’re talking about how scared you were, open your eyes wide to look frightened. If you’re talking about how you had to hit or punch at something, swing your arms wildly. Use your body as a storytelling device to drive home the details.[10]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 10.jpg
    • This will help keep your audience engaged and interested in what you have to say.
    • If you’re sitting right next to someone, use caution when you swing your arms around so you don’t hit them.
    • Try to stay seated when you tell your story. Standing up or acting out your words can make you seem too eager.
  3. Use pauses for dramatic effect. As you get closer and closer to the climax of your story, stop talking for 2 to 3 seconds at a time. Act like you can’t even bear to tell the rest of the story to engage your audience even more.[11]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 11.jpg
    • Your audience might even feel bad for making you tell the story, which makes it even more scary.
    • For example, you could say, “And then… (dramatic pause) I heard a knock at the door.”
  4. End the story with the dramatic climax. Yell the last sentence of your story while you lunge forward at your listeners and scare the life out of them. This will probably make them jump since they are so frightened. Even if they chuckle afterwards, you’ll know that you got them good with your story.[12]
    Tell Scary Stories Step 12.jpg
    • You can also end your story as quietly and uncomfortably as you started it for a more subtle, disconcerting effect.
    • Try to keep your story under 5 minutes long so that your audience doesn’t get bored.


  • Don't smile or laugh when you're telling the story. You want to establish a somber mood, tinged with anxiety.
  • Always be on the lookout for new material. Read horror stories often, and think of ways you can adapt them into the spoken form.


  • Make sure your story is appropriate for the audience. Young children, for example, probably don’t want to hear about blood and guts.

How to Cook Cabbage and Potatoes

Lots of cuisines have a dish based on cabbage and potatoes. Although there are many ways to prepare them, you're sure to get a meal that's inexpensive, filling, and nutritious. Try frying shredded cabbage with chopped potatoes to get a crispy meal that cooks up quickly or boil cabbage leaves with potatoes for a silky side dish that's great with sausage. To get vegetables with a caramelized flavor, roast the cabbage with potatoes in a little chicken stock.


[Edit]Pan-Fried Cabbage and Potatoes

  • 1/2 of a green cabbage
  • 1 large potato
  • 5 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.4 g) of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (0.5 g) of ground black pepper

Makes 4 servings

[Edit]Boiled Cabbage with Potatoes

  • 1/2 head of green cabbage
  • 1 large potato
  • 1 teaspoon (3 g) of whole peppercorns
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) of salt

Makes 4 servings

[Edit]Oven-Baked Potatoes and Cabbage

  • 1 green cabbage
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled
  • of bacon
  • 2 cups (300 g) of yellow onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon (5.5 g) of salt
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) of ground black pepper
  • of chicken stock or broth

Makes 6 servings


[Edit]Pan-Frying Cabbage and Potatoes

  1. Fry 5 strips of bacon in a skillet over medium heat until they're crispy. Chop the bacon into pieces and place them in a deep skillet. Turn the burner to medium and stir the bacon occasionally as it fries. Cook the bacon until it's completely fried and crispy.[1]

    Cook Cabbage and Potatoes Step 1 Version 3.jpg
    • The amount of time this takes depends on how thick your bacon slices are. Plan on frying the bacon for 5 to 10 minutes.
    • Prep the cabbage and potato while the bacon is frying.
  2. Transfer the fried bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Once the bacon is completely crispy, carefully scoop it up with a slotted spoon. Put the pieces on the paper towel-lined plate, which will absorb the excess grease.[2]
    Cook Cabbage and Potatoes Step 2 Version 3.jpg
    • Leave the grease in the skillet because you'll cook the cabbage and potato in it.
  3. Shred 1/2 a head of cabbage and chop 1 potato into pieces. Rinse the vegetables and place them on a cutting board. To shred the cabbage, slice it in half through the core. Cut out the white core and discard it. Then, slice across the cabbage in strips. Take the potato and cut it into pieces.[3]

    • You can peel the potato or leave the skin on for added texture.
  4. Add the cabbage, potato, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Place the shredded cabbage and potato pieces into the skillet with the bacon grease. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon (1.4 g) of salt and 1/4 teaspoon (0.5 g) of ground black pepper.[4]

    • If you like a little extra crunch, sauté 1/3 cup (50 g) of diced onion in the skillet for about 5 minutes before you add the cabbage and potato.
  5. Cover the skillet and fry the mixture over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes. Keep the burner on medium heat and put the lid on the skillet to trap the steam. Cook the cabbage until it's tender and stir the mixture every few minutes so it fries evenly.[5]

    • Wear oven mitts when you lift the lid off of the skillet and ensure that the steam doesn't burn you.
  6. Stir in the garlic and cook the uncovered mixture for 1 minute. Remove the lid and add 5 cloves of minced garlic. Stir until the garlic is incorporated and cook it just until it becomes fragrant.[6]

  7. Turn off the burner and stir in the crispy bacon pieces. Sprinkle the fried bacon over the cabbage and potato mixture. Then, stir until it's combined and spoon the cabbage and potato mixture onto serving plates.[7]

    Cook Cabbage and Potatoes Step 7 Version 3.jpg
    • Although you can store leftover cabbage and potatoes in the refrigerator, the mixture will continue to soften as it's stored. Eat the cabbage and potatoes within 3 days.

[Edit]Boiling Cabbage with Potatoes

  1. Wrap the bacon and peppercorns in 1 cabbage leaf. Rinse a green cabbage and pull off the large outer leaf. Lay the leaf on your work surface so it rests like a bowl. Then, fold 3 slices of bacon so they fit in the middle of the cabbage leaf and put 1 teaspoon (3 g) of whole peppercorns on the bacon.[8]

    • To boil vegetarian cabbage and potatoes, skip this step.
  2. Fold the leaf over to cover the bacon and wrap it with kitchen twine. Fold the cabbage leaf over the bacon and tuck the sides of the leaf under to create a little cabbage package. Take a piece of kitchen twine and wrap it around the narrow side of cabbage. Then, wrap it across the in the opposite direction and tie a secure knot.[9]

    • It's important to wrap the cabbage well so the peppercorns don't float out as you boil the cabbage and potatoes.
  3. Cut the cabbage in 1/2 and trim away the white core. Carefully slice through the green cabbage so you cut through the core. Take a small knife and cut the white core away from the bottom of the cabbage. Discard the tough core.[10]

    • Save the other cabbage half for another recipe.
  4. Put the cabbage leaves into a colander and rinse them under cold water. Pull away each leaf from the cabbage half and place them in a colander. Set the colander in the sink and run cold water over them. Leave them in the colander while you prepare the potato.

    • If you prefer, cut the cabbage into 3 or 4 wedges.
  5. Peel 1 potato and cut it into chunks. Rinse the potato and peel it. Carefully cut the potato in half lengthwise and lay the halves flat on your cutting board. Cut through each half lengthwise and then slice across them to make pieces.[11]

    • It's important to peel the potato because the peel will be tough after you boil the potato.
    • If you'd like to add more vegetables to the dish, cut 4 peeled carrots into quarters and cut 1 onion into 6 wedges.
  6. Fill a pot half full of salted water and bring it to a boil. Place a large pot or Dutch oven on the stove and fill it at least half full with water. Add 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) of salt and turn the burner to high.[12]

    • Place the lid on the pot to help the water boil faster. You'll know the water's boiling when you see steam escaping from under the lid.
  7. Add the potato chunks and cook them over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Put the potatoes in a slotted spoon and slowly lower them into the boiling water. Turn the burner down so the water bubbles gently. Keep the lid off of the pot and cook the potatoes until they're just starting to become tender.[13]

    • The potatoes will continue to cook when you add the cabbage to the pot.
    • If you're adding carrots and an onion, put them in the pot with the potatoes.
  8. Add the bacon packet and cabbage and simmer it for 20 minutes. Take the cabbage leaves from the colander and add them to the simmering water along with the cabbage-wrapped bacon packet. Put the lid on the pot and turn the burner down to medium. Simmer the cabbage and potatoes until they're both completely tender.[14]

    • The bacon flavors the cabbage and potatoes as they cook.
  9. Drain the cabbage and potatoes into a colander. Turn off the burner and wear oven mitts to pick up the pot. Slowly pour the mixture into the colander that's in the sink so the water drains. Discard the bacon packet and serve the boiled cabbage and potatoes while they're hot.[15]

    • If you like, top the dish with butter and serve it with corned beef or sausage.
    • Refrigerate leftover boiled cabbage in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

[Edit]Roasting Potatoes with Cabbage

  1. Preheat the oven to and cut 1 cabbage into quarters. Rinse a cabbage and place it on your cutting board. Use a sharp knife to carefully cut the cabbage in half through the core. Lay each half flat and cut them in half again through the core. Then, cut away the white cores and discard them.[16]

    • Feel free to substitute red cabbage for the green cabbage.
  2. Cut 2 large potatoes into chunks. Rinse the potatoes and peel them. Place the potatoes on a cutting board and cut each in half lengthwise. Lay the halves flat and cut them in half lengthwise again. Then, cut across the potato pieces to create chunks.[17]

    • If you can't find large potatoes, use 3 or 4 smaller potatoes.
  3. Arrange the cabbage and potatoes in a roasting pan. Get out a deep roasting pan and place the cabbage quarters in it. Scatter the potato pieces around the cabbage so they alternate with the cabbage quarters.[18]

    • Set the pan aside while you fry the bacon and onions.
    • If you'd like to add carrots to the dish, cut 6 peeled carrots into pieces and scatter them over the potatoes and cabbage in the pan.
  4. Fry of chopped bacon over medium heat for 7 minutes. Chop the bacon slices into pieces and place them in a skillet on the stove. Turn the burner to medium and stir the bacon occasionally as it fries. Cook the bacon pieces until they start to look crispy around the edges.[19]

    • If you don't want to include bacon in the dish, skip this step.
  5. Add 2 cups (300 g) of sliced onions to the skillet and cook them for 5 minutes. Carefully lower 2 cups of sliced onions into the skillet with the bacon. Stir the mixture so the onions are coated with the bacon grease and cook them over medium heat until they soften a little.[20]

    • Avoid dropping the onion slices into the skillet or the bacon grease could splash you.
  6. Spread the bacon and onion mixture over the vegetables. Turn off the burner and put on oven mitts. Carefully hold the skillet in 1 hand and spoon the bacon and onion mixture over the vegetables in the roasting pan. Tilt the pan so the grease also drips onto the vegetables.[21]

    • The bacon grease prevents the vegetables from sticking to the pan as they roast.
  7. Pour chicken stock over the mixture and add salt and pepper. Slowly pour of chicken stock or broth over the vegetables in the roasting pan. Then, sprinkle 1 teaspoon (5.5 g) of salt and 1 teaspoon (2 g) of ground black pepper evenly over the pan.[22]

    • If you prefer, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken stock.
  8. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake it for 1 1/2 hours. Tear off a sheet of aluminum foil and wrap it tightly over the top of the roasting pan. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake the cabbage and potatoes until they're completely tender.[23]

    Cook Cabbage and Potatoes Step 24 Version 3.jpg
    • The vegetables will steam as they bake and they'll absorb flavor from the chicken stock.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes before serving the dish. Wear oven mitts to take the pan out of the oven and set it on the stove. Leave the covered dish to rest for 15 minutes so it finishes cooking. Then, wear the mitts to peel away the foil. Spoon the cabbage and potatoes onto serving dishes and ladle some of the bacon broth over them.[24]

    • Refrigerate the leftover cabbage and potatoes in an airtight container for up to 3 days. The dish will become more flavorful as it's stored.



  • Use your favorite type of potatoes in these recipes. For a slightly sweeter flavor, try substituting sweet potatoes.
  • To make any of these dishes vegetarian, leave out the bacon and substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock.
