Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

Here is a great side dish to have up your sleeve.  It’s perfect for pairing with pork, turkey, or even a few German sausages. I like to cook this so that the cabbage is tender, but not mushy.  This dish has a tangy sweet and sour bite.  The chewy raisins are a great combination with the cabbage.  You can serve this warm or room temperature, so it’s an easy dish to bring to a pot luck or barbecue.

  • 1 head of red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 C. orange juice
  • 1/2 C. apple juice
  • 1/4 C. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 C. raisins- golden raisins would be great too
  • 3 T. brown sugar
  • 1 pinch of ground cloves
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan with a lid.  Bring to a boil, and reduce the heat to low.  Simmer for about 25-30 minutes or until the cabbage is tender.  Remove the lid for the last 5 minutes of cooking to allow some of the liquid to evaporate and condense.  Serve with a slotted spoon.
