Dutch Red Cabbage with Apples

I am grateful to Lana S. for this recipe. Our family loves it with chicken, turkey or pork roast dinners. I say, people who don’t care for it haven’t tasted it!

1/2 onion, chopped
1 small or 1/2 large red cabbage
2 apples, chopped
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt

Saute onion in a small amt. of oil and stir frequently, cooking on med. heat, for about 10 minutes. Cut cabbage into wedges and chop thinly. Add cabbage, vinegar, sugar, salt and then the apples. Continue cooking, (turn down heat) stirring every once in a while, until cabbage is soft and apples have totally discolored. (about 1 hr)
You can make this a day ahead and reheat. Enjoy!

  8. Yes, that is the exact recipe my grandmother and mother used to make and now I continue the tradition. Many years ago, I taught German cooking in adult classes and they loved this cabbage when they learned how to make it. It is so good and even better left over. Thanks for sharing. Susan

  15. Bobbie .... if you are referring to a comment above about rode kool ... that is how they say it in Dutch, but you are right in how they say it in German. It sounds quite similar ... both are correct.

    1. Nah, you both are wrong! It is 'rooie kool' en niks kan beter zijn want 'hij ziet toch rood en zie je dat niet?'
