We were invited to an Oktoberfest Party and told to bring our favorite beverage, and a food item with a German flair. I decided to make a batch of good old fashioned, sweet and sour red cabbage. It takes no time at all to put all the ingredients together. You just have to plan ahead for the cooking time.
1 large head of red cabbage, shredded
2 apples, peeled and diced
1 small/medium red onion, diced
3 strips of cooked bacon, diced (optional)
½ cup raw sugar
½ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of coarse ground sea salt
1 teaspoon of whole pepper corns, crushed
¼ teaspoon of whole caraway seeds (optional)
10 whole cloves
Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker, set it to high temperature, and cook for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. (Note: This can also be cooked on a stove top in a large pot on a low simmer for 1½ to 2 hours.)
