Woodstove Cabbage

1 small or medium head cabbage, quartered
Salt and pepper, to taste

Place each cabbage section on separate sheet of foil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut small holes in each cabbage section and fill each hole with butter. Wrap twice in foil and place to the side of coals. Bake for 15 minutes, or until tender.

The cabbage probably will burn a little, but it is still fabulous. The caramelized cabbage is sweeter, making it special enough for Sunday morning breakfast. Just add eggs and toast.
