Cabbage Boiled Dinner
Heat a large kettle with 3-4 quarts of water. Add the carrots and potatoes, boil on low to medium heat for about 15 minutes. Then add the cabbage and sausage; cook for an additional 20-25 minutes. When the vegetables are tender, the meal is ready. Using a slotted spoon, put a serving of each vegetable on each plate. Mash the carrots and potatoes lightly with a fork, add butter, salt, pepper, and ketchup to any or all items as desired.
