    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a good, basic way to cook cabbage. Sweetened by cooking in generously salted water (believe it or not), meltingly tender and sparked with tasty vinegar and black pepper, this cabbage is good hot or at room temperature. And it holds a week in the refrigerator! Adapted from HGTV website.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large green cabbage, halved, cored and diced into 1-inch pieces
    • 6 quarts boiling generously salt water
    • 3 tablespoons good-tasting vinegar, to taste (wine, sherry, balsamic or cider)
    • black pepper, freshly ground
    • salt, if desired


    1. 1
      Drop cabbage in boiling water. Once it's back to boiling, cook 3-5 minutes, or until just tender.
    2. 2
      Drain in a colander and, while still hot, toss with vinegar, generous amount of black pepper and salt to taste. Cabbage should have a pleasing tartness and a nice snap of pepper. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature. Good with fish, meats or poultry, especially anything grilled.

      Really enjoyed this as it cold and rainy here. I used balsamic and thought it a perfect match. We love cabbage. Thanks Sharon for sharing.

      This was a great, quick way to use up some leftover cabbage from another recipe! I couldn't decide between balsamic or white vinegar (white's my favorite) so I did half of each. I preferred the balsamic, which surprised me!!

      This is quite nice. It was certainly easy and inexpensive and the taste was good too. I used apple cider vinegar and think that next time I would like to try the balsamic (but I didn't have any white on hand). Really interesting way to serve cabbage!! Thanks Sharon!!
