Braised Red Cabbage With Apples - Scandanavia

Braised Red Cabbage With Apples - Scandanavia created by Nif_H

My Norwegian great-grandmother Alice used to make this dish at Christmas. She didn't leave me the recipe! I remember she used jam in it. This is one could be close. It is from "The Best Recipes in the World" by Mark Bittman.

  • Combine the butter, sugar, and vinegar with a large pinch of salt and sprinkling of pepper in a large deep skillet with a lid over medium heat. Bring to a boil.
  • Add the cabbage, stirring to coat. When the cabbage begins to glisten and soften a bit, add the apple pieces and stir.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the cabbage is soft, about 45 minutes.
  • Stir in the currant jelly. Taste and adjust the seasoning, then serve.

    i made exactly as written but thought it was too buttery (crazy, i know!) but honestly the strongest flavor was the butter. dunno if butter from grass-fed cows is more butter-esque?? anyway, i will definitely make this again just with less butter. and i will probably use balsamic vinegar to punch up that flavor.

    Fantastic recipe that cooked itself. Good thing because I was making so many dishes that this one was on the stove a little longer than it should have been but it was perfect! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe and it was so good with all of the other dishes. Thanks!

    This was delicious. I was surprised how much flavor the currant jelly added. A real hit at my house. Thanks for sharing, Stacy. Made for CQ4.
