Country Cabbage and Pea Soup

Add the following ingredients to a four or six quart crock pot, salt & pepper to taste keeping in mind that salt pork is just that, cover with water and cook on high till it boils, then cut back to low for four or five hours.  A slow cooker works well, I set mine to low and cook for five to seven hours.

1 Small Cabbage quartered or as in the case of the photo above, three chunks cut out of very large cabbage
1 Large Potato diced or 2 or 3 small ones
1/2 Cup each of dried Garbanzos, Chick Peas, and Split Green Peas
3 or 4 Slices of Salt Pork, You can substitute bacon if you have no salt pork.

No strong man, in good health, can be neglected, if he be true to himself. For the benefit of the young, I wish we had a correct account of the number of persons who fail to success, in a thousand who resolutely strive to do well. I do not think it exceeds on per cent.
