Sweet-Sour Cabbage

Red and green cabbage

Sweet-Sour Cabbage with apples, Coca-Cola, brown sugar and bacon drippings - absolutely delicious! Caraway seeds complement.


1.5 pound red or green cabbage
2 medium apples
1/2 cup Coca-Cola
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1-teaspoon caraway seeds


Coarsely shred or cut cabbage (should measure 3-cups). Core and dice unpeeled apples.

In pan, toss together all ingredients except the caraway seeds.

Cover, simmer until cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes; stir occasionally. Add caraway seeds and cook another 5 to 10 minutes.

Note: To reduce foam for accurate measurement, use Coca-Cola at room temperature and stir rapidly.
