Make this braised cabbage as a tasty side dish to pork or ham, or serve it with roast beef or lamb.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 large tart apple, peeled, cored, finely diced
  • 1/2 head of cabbage, coarsely chopped or shredded, about 8 cups
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves or apple jelly
  • salt, to taste


In a large saucepan or electric skillet, or Dutch oven, heat butter over low heat; add onion and apple; sauté for about 7 to 10 minutes, or until soft. Add cabbage, pepper, and vinegar; and preserves or jelly; toss to blend well. Cover tightly and simmer slowly over low heat for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until cabbage is very soft and tender. Add salt to taste.
Serves 4.
