Braised red cabbage with apples


Enough to serve 4 (LARGE) servings
 2 lb. red cabbage
 1 lb. onions, chopped
1 lb. cooking apples, peeled, cored & chopped small
3 tablespoons wine vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 clove garlic
1/4 whole nutmeg, freshly grated
1/4 level teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 level teaspoons ground cloves

Remove outer leaves and hard core of the cabbage - shred the rest finely. In a fairly large casserole arrange a layer of cabbage seasoned with salt and pepper then a layer of onions and apples, with a sprinkling of garlic, spices and sugar. Continue with these alternate layers until everything is in. Pour in the wine vinegar, add the butter, cover, and cook very slowly in a low oven (300F, 150C) for 2.5 to 3 hours, stirring once or twice during cooking.
