“Since red cabbage is one of my favorite veggies, I have collected many recipes, this is another easy favorite that makes a wonderful side dish to turkey, or beef. I like to add in chopped cooked bacon, but that is optional. The amounts can be doubled to serve more than 4.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -5 tablespoons oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 -2 apple, peeled, cored and chopped (I use Gala apples for this)
  • 1 small red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
  • 14 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 14 cup sugar (can use more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed (or to taste)
  • salt and black pepper


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add in onion and saute until golden (about 7-8 minutes).
  3. Add in sliced cabbage, cider vinegar, sugar, celery seeds and black pepper; mix to combine and cook until the cabbage if crisp-tender and the liquid is reduced to a glaze (about 10-12 minutes).
  4. Season with salt.
