The balsamic vinegar makes this one so distinct from the typical red cabbage side dish. Loved the tangy flavor here. I did use a bit less honey than suggested as I tend more towards savory than sweet.
- 1 head cabbage, Tina says green, but think you could use red if available
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1⁄4 cup light corn syrup or 1⁄4 cup honey
- butter (for frying)
- salt and pepper
- Slice the cabbage thinly and saute over medium high heat together with the onion for a couple of minutes.
- Mix the Apple juice, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon sticks, and syrup or honey. Cover and let simmer until the cabbage softens. This will take about 15 minutes.
