There is nothing quite like a good fruit pie. I like using seasonal fruit… and plums have a long season… from May 'till October. This pie could be made with other fruit, like peaches… however, plums are my favorite! You can make this with a pre-made crust if you like. I prefer to make my own. It’s so quick with a food processor it’s crazy! There is something satisfying about rolling out a crust…especially on my trusty Tupperware mat.
Red cabbage adds color and lots of great nutrients to any meal. Many recipes call for sugar and vinegar for this dish. I find that the apple makes it sweet enough. Vinegar upsets my stomach, so I use lemon juice for this recipe as well as for salad dressings. I omit the pepper as well.
