Cabbage is good!

Cabbage is good!  I braised some cabbage tonight for my dinner.  Here is the recipe.


4 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 large “Granny Smith” apple, peeled, cored and diced
Half a head of cabbage, chopped coarsely
Quarter teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
Three tablespoons of cider vinegar ( I used red wine vinegar)
One quarter cup apricot preserves


1.    Sautee onions and apple in butter for about 8 minutes.
2.    Add cabbage, pepper, vinegar and apricot preserves -  blend well.
3.    Simmer in a covered pan over low heat for about 90 minutes

How I cooked this tonight.

(Having sautéed the onion and apple in a skillet, I transferred them to a slow cooker, and then added the cabbage, pepper, red wine vinegar and apricot preserves.  I also added some thinly sliced boneless pork chops.  Then I allowed the whole mess to simmer away for about an hour and three quarters).

‘Twas delicious!  And there are more than enough leftovers for tomorrow.
