Sweet-Sour Red Cabbage
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
My german mother in law would fry 2 - 4 strips of bacon until slightly crispy. Then put them aside and use bacon grease to fry the minced onion. Add cabbage, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and minced bacon. Cook on low heat for 20 minutes, stirring every so often. Serve warm. Leave out the caraway and celery seeds. Once in awhile she would add a bay leaf to be removed before serving. There were never any leftovers.
I found that this dish needed more sweetening. I used 3 Tbsp. brown sugar and poppy seed as I did not have celery seed available. The additional sugar gave this dish the traditional sweet-sour flavor! I'd used 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. I also got more than just 2 servings!
I made this for an Octoberfest party. My guests raved about it. I left out the caraway seeds (I don't like them) and I don't think they were missed. Great heated up for leftovers.
This was an interesting dish.
