Baked cabbage & apples.

6 servings

The apples dissolve to spice the cabbage and keep it mild. A soothing winter vegetable.


What is this delicious new vegetable? Silly goose! He doesn't know it is cabbage!- 2 oz unsalted butter

- cored, trimmed and finely shredded Savoy cabbage (about 3 lbs)

- 2-3 apples, cored, peeled and shredded

- 1-2 onions, peeled and sliced into thin crescents

- 2 Tablespoons stock or water

- ¼ teaspoon white pepper

- salt to taste


Preheat the oven to 300°.
  1. Generously smear the butter all over the inside of a casserole or heavy ovenproof pot that just holds the cabbage mixture.
  2. Mix together all of the other ingredients and bake covered for about 1 ½ hours.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 375°, uncover the pot and bake another ten minutes or so to crisp the top and serve.

- If you like cabbage but not lots of pots, cook it with your carrots - make Braised cabbage and carrots.
