On my last post I mentioned the freezing of red cabbage for Christmas day. Red Hen expressed an interest in this and I promised to post the recipe. Now the fact that it freezes well comes from hubby, as it always makes too much for the two of us to eat it, he said to freeze it, not something I would have thought about doing I must admit, but he is right (a rare occasion) it does.
- One onion chopped
- 1/4 cup butter
- One red cabbage sliced finely
- 3 cooking apples peeled and diced
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- salt and pepper
Melt the butter and cook the onion, sauté till soft. Add all other ingredients bring to boil. Simmer till tender about 20 minutes. Season.
A German recipe from a Canadian book but hubby whose mother is German says it is as good as hers!
Weather here in Devon awful today and fear I might have to run in wellies tomorrow.
