A delicious German side dish. Comfort food at its best. German red cabbage is the perfect combination of sweet, sour and salty!
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- 1 Large sweet onion, chopped (about 2½ cups)
- 1 head Red cabbage, shredded (8 to 10 cups)
- 2 Large Fuji apples, chopped
- ⅓ cups Sugar
- ⅓ cups apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon Ground clove
- 1 sheet Bay Or Laurel

Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add onion and sauté until aromatic.
Add shredded cabbage and apples. Stir in sugar, vinegar, ground cloves, bay leaf, white pepper and sprinkle with salt. Mix well to distribute the flavors. Add water to facilitate the cooking process.
