SWEET AND SOUR RED CABBAGE
6 to 8 servings
Sweet and sour red cabbage has been a favorite vegetables dish with Americans of German decent for decades. For those of you who like sweet and sour flavors together, this recipe is a nice addition to an Autumn meal.
In a large heavy skillet, heat bacon drippings or melt butter over moderate heat. Add apple slices and sauté over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until tender. Mix in cabbage. In a 1-cup measure, combine remaining ingredients, blending well; stir mixture into cabbage. Reduce heat, cover, and cook over low heat about 30 to 40 minutes or until cabbage is of desired tenderness.
Variation: Add 2 to 3 slices crisp-cooked bacon that have been coarsely crumbled or cut into ½-inch pieces to cooked red cabbage just before serving. Or, garnish each serving with crumbled crisp-cooked bacon or bacon pieces.
