1 kg ripe (not overripe) tomatoes
1 kg powdered sugar
Juice from 4 lemons
Dry the tomatoes well, prick with a darning needle and place in a jar, alternating with the sugar in layers. Let sit for 24 hours. The next day, pour the juice into a pot, add lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Pour the hot liquid over the tomatoes. Repeat the process over the next two days (heating up the juice and pouring it boiling hot over the tomatoes.) A bit of cognac can be poured into the jars on the last day before they’re sealed. Be sure to use the same hygiene rules for canning here as you would for anything else.

1 small head of red cabbage
1/2 dl oil
2 tbsp sugar
4 dl Ribena (this is a red currant concentrate)
5 bay leaves
1/2 dl vinegar
1/2 L water
1 tsp salt
Divide the cabbage into four parts and cut the stalk out. Shred and saute in oil in a pot for 5 minutes. Sprinkle sugar atop the cabbage and add Ribena, bay leaves, vinegar, and water. Mix well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on low for 15 minutes. If the liquid cooks out, add more Ribena and water. When the dish is finished, season with salt and pepper. Right before serving, you can stir a bit of warm duck fat into it, if you wish.
