The slight sweet and vinegary taste of this cabbage and apples recipe makes it the perfect side to a variety of fall and winter main dishes.


  • 1 head red cabbage
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 apples
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 splash of port or sherry (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper


  1. Shred the cabbage (see the video tutorial!). Thinly slice the onion. Peel and thinly slice the apples. Mince the garlic.
  2. In a Dutch oven or large pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Saute the onion until soft, around 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cabbage, apples, garlic, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, apple cider, port or sherry (optional), caraway seeds, and a bit of salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low heat until the cabbage is tender, around 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool a bit, and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
