5 lbs. red cabbage

1/2 cup butter

1 shallot, diced to 1/8 in.

1 apple, peeled and grated

2 tsp. red-wine vinegar

2 cups dry, fruity red wine

Salt and white pepper to taste

Sugar to taste


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Peel the leaves off the red cabbage. Cut the leaves in half, remove the veins, and cut into approximately 2-inch-square pieces. In a large saucepan, melt 4 tbs. butter and add the shallots and sweat. Add the red cabbage, grated apple, and vinegar, and sweat for a couple of minutes. Add 1 tsp. salt, a pinch of sugar, and 1/5 of the red wine. Cover with a lid and cook in the oven. When the liquid has reduced, add another 1/5 of the red wine every 20 to 30 minutes. The entire cooking time is about 2 hours, or until the leaves are tender and all the liquid is reduced. Remove from the oven, and add the remaining butter and season to taste with salt, white pepper, and a pinch of sugar. (Published 2012)
