Bette's Braised Red Cabbage with Apple

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2008


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 small head red cabbage (2 pounds), cored and thinly shredded
  • 1/4 cup red-currant jelly
  • 3 tablespoons peeled, coarsely grated Granny Smith apple (about 1/2 apple)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine butter, sugar, salt, water, and vinegar in a Dutch oven or an ovenproof pot over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring until butter melts and sugar dissolves.

  2. Add cabbage, and toss to combine. Cover and place in oven. Bake, stirring once halfway through, until cabbage is wilted and tender, 1 hour and 50 minutes.

  3. Stir in jelly and apple, cover, and bake 10 minutes more. Let stand, covered, until ready to serve (or for up to 1 hour; rewarm gently over low heat).
