Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage #recipe @LucyBurdette


Every once in a while I get an unexplained craving--this time I had to have sweet and sour red cabbage! So here you go, now you can have it too. And I didn't think of it at the time, but I love the idea of fried potato pancakes to go along with the cabbage.

Don't you love it when you make your own mouth water, just thinking about food? This time I'll blame it on my German ancestors!

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, chopped
  • 4 cups thinly sliced red cabbage (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed

Saute the onion and apple until soft and golden. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue cooking until cabbage is soft and glazed.

Serve with maybe a platter of fried potato pancakes with a dollop of sour cream, alongside roast chicken, roast pork, roast salmon?

The seventh Key West mystery, KILLER TAKEOUT, is on bookshelves everywhere. What about yours?

  1. I often wonder where these sudden food ideas come from. Fascinating, isn't it?

  2. My German ancestors made this with wine. Hmm, gotta wonder about them, eh? ; )

  3. I love love love red cabbage! The perfect fall veggie, Lucy/Roberta. It freezes so well too! I think I'll try celery seed in it the next time. Thanks for the gift of a new ingredient. Now I'm thinking about potato pancakes. XO MJ

  4. I made Chicken Pot Pie with homemade pie crust over the weekend. I have been so happy to have leftovers to eat all week! I love it! And I am going to make it again this weekend because my daughter is coming and liked the picture of what I had made and requested it. I hope I have leftovers again!
