Simple, fruity red cabbage

Thinking about Christmas always brings us to dumplings, stuffed soy steaks and red cabbage. And the most important question, why we never prepare red cabbage besides Christmas. Big mistake!

Preparing red cabbage is very easy. Plan enough time for cooking the red cabbage, cause this can take up to 120 minutes. And please, don't forget to use cloves, bay leaves, and redcurrant jelly. It's super important for the different (and typical) flavors. You can prepare the red cabbage in the morning and heat it again in the evening.

Simple, fruity red cabbage

4 servings
90 minutes


  • 500 g (17.6 oz) red cabbage
  • 2 onions
  • 1 apple
  • vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves


  1. Cut red cabbage in fine slices. Peel and finely dice onions. Cut the apple in small pieces.
  2. Take out a large pot, heat plant-based oil and roast onions until glazed. Afterward, add red cabbage.
  3. Add vinegar, sugar, jelly, and spices to your red cabbage. There are small cooking bags, where you can put in stuff like cloves and bay leaves, so you don’t have to search for them afterward when you want to remove them before serving.
  4. Stir well and let simmer until red cabbage is soft, which will take about 30 minutes at least, depending on how thin you’ve cut it.
  5. Afterward, add apple dices and keep simmering for ten more minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving and don’t forget to remove cloves and bay leaf.
