Bohemian Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Submitted by: DILBERTA

Introduction

For my husband's birthday I wanted to do something special. He loves German food so I made sausage, perogies and this recipe for sweet & sour cabbage (which I found on RecipeZarr).

Here is what the posting author wrote:
This recipe is so old it could be considered "antique." It was my grandmother's recipe. When I prepared it, I was an adult but it definitely rang childhood memory bells. I did remember this delicious taste. My grandmother wrote out this recipe as I am reproducing it and on the recipe she noted that this dish is good with roast pork or pork chops, dumplings and applesauce. An excellent meal from Central Europe! (Bread dumplings are now available in the freezer section of the supermarket.)

Enjoy!

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon shortening (or oleo)
    1 small onion, chopped

    1 1/2 cups water
    1/2 cup vinegar
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper

    1 1/2 lbs cabbage, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon caraway seed (or to taste) (optional)
    2 teaspoons flour

Directions

1. BROWN the onion in the shortening, only to a golden color. Do not brown.

2. ADD the water, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil. (This liquid is just enough for this size cabbage).

3. PUT cabbage in; sprinkle with caraway seed if you wish. Boil for 1/2 hour. Sprinkle with flour. Stir it up and boil just a few seconds for the flour to dissolve.


The posting author's Grandmother notes that you shouldn't "put cooked cabbage in freezer -- just in icebox." (aka: refrigertor)
