    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    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 the 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.)

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown the onion in the shortening, only to a golden color. Do not brown.
    2. 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. 3
      Put cabbage in; sprinkle with caraway seed if you wish.
    4. 4
      Boil for 1/2 hour.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with flour. Stir it up and boil just a few seconds for the flour to dissolve.
    6. 6
      Grandmother notes that you shouldn't "put cooked cabbage in the freezer -- just in box." (Box is the old-time short way of saying "icebox" -- we would say refrigerator!).

      Great recipe. I come from a Polish family who loves sweet and sour cabbage and have been making it for years. I attempted to make it myself using this recipe and everyone wants my recipe now. My husband and mother (92 years old) ask me to make it a few times a month. I use green cabbage instead of the red. It's so easy and delicious!

      Loved it thanks so much. The neighbor had given me a beautiful red cabbage from her garden. I haven't made sweet & sour cabbage in ages and I love it. I did add a little extra sugar as mine seemed a little tart and I thickened it with cornstarch instead of flour. Otherwise followed the recipe. Super yummy!

      I have been searching for a recipe like my Mother made that gave me amounts instead of a little of this and some of that. This tastes just like I remember and now I can finally make it! The only little difference is that I remember she added some chopped apple to hers and used bacon grease instead of solid shortening, (which I did buy the way, and it tastes great). I also used cider vinegar. Don't care much for plain white. Thank you for a great recipe! Woud give you more than 5 stars if I could!
