Braised Red Cabbage with Apples


1 small red cabbage, about 2 pounds, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced crosswise

2 slices of bacon, diced, or use a tablespoon of butter or oil

1 tablespoon diced onion

1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into matchsticks

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

1/4 teaspoon salt if using bacon. If using butter or oil, use 1 teaspoon

1/8 teapoon caraway seed

Briefly immerse the cabbage in cold water. Render the bacon ( or heat the butter/oil)

Add and cook over medium low heat onions until golden brown. Add cabbage, vinegar, honey, caraway seeds and salt. Cover and cook over low heat for 1 - 1 1/2 hours, until the cabbage is very soft. Add boiling water if it starts to dry out. Recipe from Joy of Cooking.
