German Red Cabbage

My husband made this red cabbage dish for our Bavarian Feast the other day and we all loved it!  The original recipe is Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage.  He modified it by using the whole head of cabbage (who wants to measure shredded cabbage?), omitting the butter, and adjusting the seasonings accordingly.  It's an easy recipe and one that you can easily fill up on guilt-free - gotta love that!

German Red Cabbage

1 head red cabbage, shredded
2 small gala apples, sliced
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Place butter, cabbage, apples, and sugar into a large pot. Pour in the vinegar and water, and season with salt, pepper, and clove.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the cabbage is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
