This is modified from my favorite cooking magazine, Cuisine at Home. I liked it because it was quick and used ingredients on hand. Note on timing: Prep time is how long it actually took me--but I've been really blessed with loads of prep practice in restaurants. Cook time is a guestimate, I didn't really time it. Original recipe says total time is 25 minutes.

  1. Over medium low heat, saute bacon in a large saucepan until crispy.
  2. Increase heat to medium high and add onions and apples, stir constantly until onions just start to wilt.
  3. Add flour and stir, cooking 1-2 minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste.
  4. Slowly add cider vinegar while stirring and then sugar.
  5. Dump in the cabbage.
  6. Put a lid on it and stir it around periodically until cabbage is tender.
  7. Salt to taste and serve.
