Lass uns kochen

  1. Heat a dutch oven or large sauce pan to medium-high. Add the butter. When melted, add the sliced onion and apple. Cook, stirring infrequently as to let brown and caramelize. Salt & Pepper.
  2. Sprinkle sugar over onion mixture and stir to caramelize further. Put the remaining ingredients in the pan, cover, and reduce heat. Note: A little clove goes a long way. Cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until cabbage is tender, stirring occasionally.
