Pickled Purple Cabbage

Do any of you absolutely love to ‘eyeball’ cook? You know, no measuring spoons, no recipes, just throwing ingredients together and using your good old fashioned trust of the old eyeballs? Its the only way I cook most times…my favorite way to cook. Which sounds silly, really, because I share recipes here.
