    I have this card somewhere. Mom had these in the 70s. She made this dish once, then returned to her usual stovetop stuffed cabbage cooked in tomato sauce and tomato soup. I have been wanting to make my own recipe, but cook them in the oven with the molasses sauce, and I moved a year ago and didn’t want to go looking for the recipe – not even sure where it is. I’ve never made it this way, and I hope my memory of it being delicious is true. Thanks for these memories.
