 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/4  Lbs           Green Cabbage
    2      Cups          Water
    1      Tbsp          Olive Oil
    1 1/4  Lbs           Potatoes, Peeled & Quartered
    1      Cup           Chopped Leeks, White Part
    1      Cup           Milk
    1      Pinch         Ground Mace
                         Salt And Pepper To Taste

    1      Tbsp          chopped par
 
 In a large pot simmer the cabbage covered in 2 cups of water and the oil
 for 10 minutes (I do it longer).  Drain and chop fine; set aside and keep
 warm.  In a small pot bring the potatoes and water to cover to a boil and
 simmer until tender.  In another small pot, simmer the leaks in the milk
 for 10 minutes and then keep warm.  Drain the potoatoes and puree them
 into a large pot.  Add the leeks with the milk and the cooked cabbage. 
 Beat until fluffy.  Season with mace, salt and pepper. Mound on a serving
 platter/dish and top with melted butter. Garnish with parsley if desired.
 
 Note:  you have to use butter and not oleo for this
