Keep the red cabbage separate until the last minute to ensure the contrast of colors.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the currants and Madeira and let stand. Meanwhile, dissolve the brown sugar in the vinegar and set aside. Brown the walnut pieces in 1 tablespoon butter and set aside. Caramelize the apple cubes over low heat with 1 1/2 teaspoons butter and granulated sugar, until soft and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Divide remaining butter in separate pans. Saute the cabbages over medium heat, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste, for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cabbage is wilted but has not lost its color. Combine hot cabbages and other ingredients, including the nutmeg, in a large bowl; toss well and serve immediately.
