Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the cabbage, vinegar, sugar and water in a large heavy-bottomed pot.
  2. Bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 hours or until the liquid has reduced to a syrup-like consistency. Stir occasionally during the 2-3 hours.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the strawberry preserves to the cabbage and stir until fully incorporated. Taste and decide if you want to add the remaining 1/4 cup of the preserves. If the taste is too sweet, adjust sweetness with additional salt.
