For the Brisket: In a large stockpot bring water to a boil. Add pickling spices and brisket. Cook brisket for 45 minutes at a simmer.

The BBQ sauce is optional, any will do.

For the cabbage: Trim and wash cabbage. Cut out the hearts. Slice he cabbage very thin. Remember to slice the head of cabbage into quarters. Bring the water that the brisket was cooking in to a boil. Blanch the cabbage for about 5 minutes. Strain and cool. Saute cabbage in the duck fat and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

For the potatoes: Bring water to a boil in large stockpot. Peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Place the potato halves in a strainer. Place strainer in the pot. Cover and cook until they are fork tender, about 20 minutes.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. After the butter melts add the cream and reduce by one third. Add the parsley, salt, and pepper, to taste.  Serve over potatoes.
