Shred cabbage & onions. Cover with the 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside. Boil vinegar, 2 Tbsp sugar, mustard, salt, and celery seed; pour over cabbage while hot. (Add grated carrots or diced pimientos for color) Add garlic & salad oil. Let set 24 hours; serve cold. It is quite tart, so add sugar "to taste". Will keep in refrigerator for weeks.
