German Cole Slaw

Grandma got this recipe from Dude Jackson, Freeman Dill's sister.  Freeman lived with Grandma & Grandpa for a little while when he was a very young man.  It was common practice back then to offer room and board in exchange for help on the farm.  Later he married Deloris and became part of the family. 

If I was going to name this dish, it would be Pickled Slaw.  This stuff keeps a really long time.  In the summer it's great to have on  hand to add to any meal.  Warning: store in glass container because the tumeric will stain anything plastic!

3 pounds cabbage, shredded
1 chipped onion
1 sliced bell pepper

Boil the following:
   1 1/2 cup vinegar
   1 1/2 cup sugar
   3 Tbsp salt
   1 tsp tumeric (will turn it yellow)
   1 tsp black pepper
   1 Tbsp celery seed

Pour the boiled mixture over the veggies and refrigerate.
