German Red Cabbage.....

Since I took a small side trip on my blog to Bavaria, Germany.  I thought I would introduce you to German Red Cabbage. It has a unique sweet sour taste and is a perfect accompaniment for poultry, fish or just about anything. It is something just a little different from your ordinary side dishes. This is not a new dish, but may be new to some of you.

German Red Cabbage
2 tbsp. butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 2lb. red cabbage, shredded
1 tart apple, sliced
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. water
½ cup brown sugar
2 ½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. cloves
Heat butter in a large pot, saut√© onion until soft. Add cabbage, apples, and sugar; pour vinegar and water over mixture. Season with salt pepper and cloves. Mix it well to distribute all the spice, sugar, etc. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 1 ½ to 2 hours or until cabbage is tender. 4-6 servings
Till next time......
