JBlack 1-2-3 Coleslaw

The 1-2-3 Coleslaw recipe was written by my Aunt Yvonne Elliott Weisner and appears in our family cookbook.  She was a Home Economics teacher in Virginia for many years. She was such a talented, caring, and interesting woman!  I remember visiting her, my uncle Al, and cousins Paul and Brent as a child and always being amazed at her creativity and delicious cooking! A few years ago, I added some JBlack seasoning to the coleslaw on a whim and it has become a requested side dish!

Ingredients:

  • 1 16 oz package coleslaw mix (or 3 cups green cabbage, 2 cups purple cabbage and 1 cup shredded carrots. If you prefer not to use purple cabbage, just add two more cups green cabbage to substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp. Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Cream or Milk
  • 3 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp to 1 Tbsp. JBlack seasoning of your choice

Directions:

In a large bowl make the coleslaw dressing: combine mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, cream, ½ tsp of JBlack and whisk until combined.

Add the coleslaw mix to the bowl and toss to coat coleslaw mix well with the dressing.

Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 60 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. 60 minutes is ideal, but I've gotten away with 30 minutes in a pinch.

Once ready to serve, remove from refrigerator, uncover, toss, and taste.  If additional seasoning is needed, add ½ tsp of JBlack seasoning at a time until the desired level of seasoning is reached.  Toss well and serve immediately.

Best eaten the same day as made but will keep for 3 to 5 days covered in the refrigerator.  After a couple of days, it may release some water.  Drain it away, add more mayonnaise if needed, and toss to refresh the coleslaw.

JBlack Oven Fries

Ingredients

  • Unseasoned Frozen French Fries (any variety, any size you like)
  • Cooking Spray or Oil of your choice (prefer a high heat tolerant oil such as vegatable oil)
  • JBlack seasoning of your choice

Instructions

Preheat oven to the temperature noted on the fry package.  Give you oven penty of time to preheat (at least 20 minutes).  This ensures even cooking.

Once your oven is preheated, on a sheet pan, spread out the amount of frozen fries you want to bake.  It's important that you don't croud the pan (2-3 servings of fries on one pan max), so if you're making a lot of fries, use two sheet pans.

Spray the frozen fries with cooking spray or drizzle with your favorite, high heat tolerant oil (to prevent smoking),  Toss the fries around on the sheet pan to make sure they are well coated in the oil.  Sprinkle on that JBLack of your choice and toss again. Start with a light coating of seasoning, you can always add more later if needed.

Cook in the oven per the fry package directions.  If you are using two sheet pans, be sure to rotate them top to bottom halfway through the cooking time.  You may also need to add a minute or two additional time if you like them super crispy. 

Once the fries are cooked to your liking, let them cool for a minute or two and adjust the seasoning (add more if needed).  Use a spatula to transfer the fries to a basket or plate and chow down!
