Carmelize 1 cup sugar in heavy skillet. Add to cabbage roll mixture. Juice 2 lemons and add as final ingredient. Simmer 2 hours uncovered.
says sauce pan but I used a 13" cake pan. It doesnt specify degrees, so I picked 350. ??? The cake pan holds the rolls and then the carrots and celery can be decorative by laying them horizontally, alternating. It makes a pretty dish. And it is good. Well worth the effort.
