Beef tongue, round two! Remember a few months ago when Sassy made Beef Tongue Tacos for her friends? She could not stop raving about how good the beef tongue was so of course I had to try it. Lucky for me I have a group of brave friends that trust in my cooking abilities (I’m not sure why) that were willing to dive into the world of offal.
No, I didn’t say awful I said offal. Offal is a word that refers to the internal organs of slaughtered animals. Stop freaking out.

I have cabbage coming out my ears! Seriously. our CSA has been giving us multiple heads of cabbage for the last two weeks. It’s awesome, but just too much for two people. My roommate and I both hate to waste food. We would much rather see our local, organic produce go to good use in another household than sit to rot in our fridge or stuff our faces full of the same food over and over again. Another good way to make sure your produce doesn’t go to waste is to blanched and freeze it which would allow you to continue eating local produce past the growing season. You can blanch and freeze cabbage so if this happens to you fear not!
The other way to use up your excess cabbage is in this apricot coleslaw. For the dressing I used Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Mayo but you could substitute with your own homemade version. Not sure how to make it yourself? We have a recipe in the Fall eBook. Subscribe to our mailing list for a copy!
