Pickled red Cabbage.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *** You can also use 3 cups sugar. Will yield cabbage that has a much softer "bite". More like a mild kraut than a strong vinegar pickle. 1 cup sugar gives lots of vinegar bite. I like it both ways, but usually use 3 cups sugar. If using 3 cups sugar, do not reduce the volume of vinegar. **.
  2. Layer shredded cabbage and salt in large bowl, let stand covered 24 hours.
  3. Rinse and drain 6 hours on paper towel to dry.
  4. Combine sugar, mace, mustard seed, and vinegar in pan.
