Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

The lowly cabbage is elevated to gourmet status in this recipe. Besides it's so quick and easy to make. I wasn't sure I'd like this recipe so I cut the cabbage in half. Trust me, just make the whole cabbage (double other ingredients when using the whole cabbage). Even Gary raved about it.

2 tablespoons of butter or bacon grease
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
1/2 red cabbage, core removed, sliced into 2 inch by 1/2 inch pieces
salt and pepper to taste
2 tart firm apples peeled and chopped fine

Melt the butter, add the vinegar and sugar and heat on low to melt and blend these ingredients in a non reactive pot. I used a corning ware pot with a glass top lid on top of the stove. Add the chopped red cabbage, bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes. The cabbage looks like a huge amount but it cooks down nicely. Last add the apples and simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes or until excess moisture is reduced. Serve warm along side pork chops or by itself.  

Be Safe, Be Well
