Braised Red Cabbage and Apples

Recipe by Kaarin

A recipe my mom taught me to make...I love the sweet and sour flavors in this! If you like, caraway seed may be added with the water to enhance the flavors.

I just shoved all the ingredients in a pan at the same time and cooked for 50 mins. worked out very nice though I did need to add more fluid as it dried up.
