Country Sweet-Sour Cabbage

One for MaryKate maybe, who actually likes chopping cabbage! A good slightly sweet (fruit and) veggie side dish you can feel healthy enough while eating. Perfect!

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, cored and peeled
  • 1 onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 medium head cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Chop the apples and onion finely. Cook, with the shortening, in a large skillet over medium heat for 10 minutes.

Add the cabbage and water, adding by handfuls rather than all at once.

Increase heat to medium-high and cook 15-20 minutes, until cabbage is tender, then stir in the sugar and vinegar. Add salt, pepper, and butter, stir until the butter is melted and mixed in, then serve still hot. Simple!
