1 red cabbage (about 2 lb.), cored

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1 or 2 tart apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 tsp. kosher salt

8 servings

Solvang, on the coast of southern California, was established in 1911 by a group of Danes drawn to the region by its mild winters. Today, you’ll still find traditional Danish cuisine throughout the area. This simple cabbage dish is a part of virtually every holiday feast.

Cut the cabbage into very thin slices. Place the water, apple cider vinegar, and brown sugar in a large, heavy pan, add the cabbage, and set over medium heat. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce to medium-low. Add the diced apple, cover the pan, and cook until the cabbage is completely wilted and tender, 25 to 30 min. Remove from the heat. Adjust the seasoning with sugar or vinegar, and salt to taste. Transfer to a bowl or platter, and serve immediately.
