Red Cabbage & Apples
This is harvest-time food. Excellent with sausages, and therefore perfect for your own little Oktoberfest.
|Serves 4 - 6|
Total prep and cooking time: 40 minutes
2 teaspoons canola oil
8 cups shredded red cabbage
1 medium red onion, diced
2 green apples, peeled, cored, sliced
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sugar, optional
2 - 3 tablespoons wine vinegar
Heat oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Add the onion, and fry for a couple of minutes, until it starts to soften. Add the cabbage, and stir thoroughly. Add the apple, water, salt and pepper, cover, and simmer gently over low heat for about 25 minutes.
Combine sugar (if using) and vinegar and stir into the cabbage mixture. Taste, and adjust, adding a little more sugar or vinegar as desired to adjust the sweet-sour balance to your preference. Cook for another five minutes, and serve. German versions of this dish often use quite a bit more sugar, but I prefer mine less sweet.
Welcome to the brand new look for Always in the Kitchen. The new site was developed by Julie McGalliard, who sorted out my barely coherent ramblings about what I wanted, and developed the art and technical components for the entire site. Thanks, Julie!
The older pages will be brought into the new format gradually, as I find the time to do it. In the meantime, please be patient. Let me know if you find any broken links, or if the site is acting weird, though.
