This was tasty, we only used half a cabbage as this is all we had so halved everything else. I used streaky bacon as I think it needed a little of that smoky bacon fat to cut through the vinegar - next time I think I will use a little more bacon as opposed to having to cut back on the vinegar. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the bacon until crisp, over medium heat in a large Dutch, that has a lid, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the onions, cinnamon, bay leaves, and 1 teaspoon of the salt.
  3. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, about 8 minutes.
  4. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the cabbage and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 8 minutes.
  5. Add the apple, broth, vinegar, sugar, the remaining salt, and pepper, and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender, about 1 hour.
  6. Uncover; bring to a boil, and cook, stirring, until the liquid has reduced to a sauce-like consistency, about 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish and serve.
