Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe came from my Mother-in-law. It almost taste as good as hers, and my husband says it great.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 head of red cabbage shredded
1 - 2 apples shredded
2-3 Tbs. vinegar to start with, then adjust to taste after cooking a while.


ust barely cover the cabbage in a pot with water, add the apple, a little salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook for about 15 - 20 min. then add about 2 Tbs. sugar. Through in a couple Tbs. rice. Continue cooking about 1 hour until tender. Make a flour and water mixture and add to the cooking cabbage to thicken. Taste after 15 min. and adjust with more vinegar and/or sugar to suit your taste. You can also add a little red wine. It should be a tiny bit sweet and a little tart. Enjoy!

Let me know what you think!
