Red Cabbage for Red Hen

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.




About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Oh, yummy! Thank you! Off I trot to bag me a red cabbage and cider vinegar today! The Germans sure know their sauerkraut, so I`m guessing red cabbage falls well within the remit of their expertise. It must be packed with great nutrients too. Thanks for this, Shaz!
