This recipe, attributed to the Scottish Borders, is based on the standard Celtic culinary theme of Potatoes and Cabbage. Olive or Rapeseed Oil can be substituted for Butter, although the taste may suffer. Variations of this well known recipe include adding onions and bacon or ham. It is simple and extra butter and seasoning's can be added when the ingredients are combined so as to meet individual taste. Some variations call for Nutmeg in addition to the standard Salt/Pepper seasoning. It would be an unusual cook whose kitchen cannot do this recipe justice.
