Apple Stewed Red Cabbage
Apples and red cabbage were made for each other! This is a traditional side dish for just about any meat, poultry, pork or game. The earthy bitterness of the cabbage is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the apple and the sourness of the vinegar.
1 or 2 onions, peeled and sliced
3 or 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
2 or 3 your favourite apples, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons honey
a few splashes cider vinegar
a few splashes cider, apple juice or water
a sprinkle or two sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Bring everything to a simmer and then lower the heat just enough to maintain the simmer. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and continue cooking until the cabbage is tender, about 30 minutes.
