Cut one small red cabbage into thin slices.  Dice one onion finely.  Sauté the onion in about 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil for 3 minutes on medium heat until soft. 

*If you happen to have goose fat in the refrigerator, then please use 1 tbsp of it instead of olive oil!  (more on that later...)

Add the cabbage, one diced tart apple with the peel, 1/4 cup of cider vinegar a little water to cover the bottom of the pan and 3 tbsp of brown sugar.  Cover the pot and simmer slowly for about 30 to 45 minutes. Taste and add salt, pepper, more sugar if it’s too sour. If there is too much liquid cook for a few minutes uncovered to release.  Cabbage should be soft, a little sweet and sour and ready to serve.

Great with pork, goose, ham and thanksgiving turkey!
