This recipe is from my friend Kirsten's mom Hannah, who was born in Germany. It's a favorite in their family that even their kids like, and also was a favorite at the German class last month!
- 2 ½ lbs red cabbage thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion diced
- 10 whole cloves
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 cup water, and more if needed
- 2 tart apples grated
- 1 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in a lidded sauté pan. Add onion and sauté until onion is soft. Add cabbage and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring to coat with butter. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cover. Cook for 1 to 1 ½ hours. Add water if needed. Remove cloves before serving.
Serves 6 to 8.
