  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. mustard seed
  • 1 tsp. celery seed
  • 1 medium cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, grated

Quotes

"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."
~Henry David Thoreau
