  • About


  • 1 qt. cabbage, (red or white)
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 sour apples
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fat
  • 2 tablespoons flour


Shred the cabbage fine, salt and pepper to taste, add the apples cut in slices.

Heat the fat in a spicier, add the cabbage and apples. Pour boiling water over them and let cook until tender; sprinkle over the flour, add sugar and vinegar. Cook a little longer and then serve hot with Potato Dumplings. If red cabbage is used pour boiling water over it 2 or 3 times to take out some of the color.
