Braised Red Cabbage With Apples - Scandanavia

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

My Norwegian great-grandmother Alice used to make this dish at Christmas. She didn't leave me the recipe! I remember she used jam in it. This is one could be close. It is from "The Best Recipes in the World" by Mark Bittman.

Oh my goodness, this was so delicious!! I got a red cabbage in my fruit and veg box and had no idea what to do with it. I found this recipe after a search and decided to give it a try. Who knew cabbage could be so darn delicious - thankyou for posting this!

  1. Combine the butter, sugar, and vinegar with a large pinch of salt and sprinkling of pepper in a large deep skillet with a lid over medium heat. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add the cabbage, stirring to coat. When the cabbage begins to glisten and soften a bit, add the apple pieces and stir.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the cabbage is soft, about 45 minutes.
  4. Stir in the currant jelly. Taste and adjust the seasoning, then serve.
