Red Cabbage with Apples

Submitted by: HAEJUNG

Introduction

From Luchow's German Cookbook From Luchow's German Cookbook
Number of Servings: 7

Ingredients

    1 medium-sized head, red cabbage
    2 tart apples
    2 Tbsp. chicken fat (I used butter instead)
    1 medium-sized onion, sliced
    1 quart water (I only used 3 cups)
    1/2 cup light vinegar (red wine preferred)
    1/3 cup sugar (original recipe calls for 1/2 cup)
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. black pepper
    2 cloves
    1 bay leaf
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 or 3 Tbsp. flour (optional)

Directions

Wash cabbage, drain; cut as for coleslaw.

Wash and core apples; peel and cut in small pieces. (I did not peel the apples.)

Heat fat in large saucepan and saute onion and apples 3 or 4 minutes. Add water, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, cloves, bay leaf, and lemon juice. Stir; bring to a boil. Add cabbage. Cover and let simmer 45 minutes, or until tender. Just before serving, sprinkle flour on top to absorb liquid. (I think you should use a whisk to mix the flour into the liquid of the cabbage, not sprinkle on top where it will tend to clump.)

Can be made ahead and reheated.

Makes approx. 7 1-cup servings or 9 3/4-cup servings.

    Quite delicious! Mine was a little liquidy, even after adding 3 tablespoons of flour and only adding 3 cups of water. I may cut back on the water next time or add extra flour. This recipe is a keeper!!! - 4/22/09

    Very good! I used apple cider vinegar, and a little more sugar. I don't think I used as much water as the recipe called for, just added it it needed. I also used corn startch instead of flour. I will be making this again and again, great with Herb Crusted Pork Loin recipe by Wazaroo. - 3/23/09

    We make a similar recipe at our house about once a month. We use a semi sweet red wine in place of the vinegar and sugar. - 4/12/10

  • This was excellent! I grew up in Germany but all this time I didn't find quite the right combination of ingredients to use. This was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for sharing! I can't wait to have the dish reheated today because I know it will be even better!! Wunderbar! - 5/5/12

  • Wonderful recipe! Easy to make and very tasty. I left out the flour and used Splenda in place of the sugar. Used apple cider vinegar, just because that was what was in the pantry. Will definitely make this again! - 8/7/10
