Braised Red Cabbage
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.
  1. Slice the onion, the cabbage and the appleā€¦.thinly.
  2. Juice the lemon and set aside.
  3. In a medium pot or Dutch oven, cook the onions in the butter over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring, for a few minutes.
  5. Add the apple, wine, lemon juice, and water, and bring up to a simmer, stirring.
  6. Cover and braise for 30 minutes, stirring once and checking on the texture. Cook a little less for a firmer cabbage; a little more for softer cabbage.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
