Lumpen Und Fleeh (Rags and Fleas)

1 Head white cabbage
Pork or mutton without bones
Lots of cumin
Salt, pepper to taste

Here are some German recipes from the Hessian area (Hessen being one of the federal states of Germany.). I found those dishes on some sheets that were used as separators when a copy shop returned my printing order for a science fiction fanzine I'm publishing.

Put the ingredients together in a pan and cook a hearty stew.

The name of the dish comes from the fact that the cumin seeds jump like fleas in the pan when the stew is cooked.

It is said that a local patriot from Kassel (where the dish originated) has mentioned the suspicion, that some Irish people brought it to Ireland and made it famous as Irish Stew.
