Storyline

Grandma gives the task of cooking the cabbage to Sally and Jane, who each gets one half a cabbage to work with. Sally uses very little water to make her cabbage and cooks it for a short time. Jane has her half of the cabbage swimming in water and boils it "for ever such a long time." At dinner time, Alan and David fight over Sally's cabbage, which is delicious. Neither wants to eat Jane's cabbage. Grandma gently admonishes Jane for using so much water. Written by J. Spurlin

I Like Mine Pickled

Grandma breaks up the cricket game and tells a girl to pick and cook a cabbage. The other girl insists on cooking one too, but does it all wrong.

It is nice to know that the British government was as capable of producing a dull industrial film as the US was. Usually all we see are brilliant propaganda pieces from the Humphrey Jennings unit of the GPO. It's better shot than John Ford's SEX HYGIENE, which is the gold standard for surprisingly bad government documentaries. This one is visually decent, due in no small part to the fact that the director started out in the camera department.
