Recipe from the KQ Cookbook: Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Great color, great taste — and can be served hot or cold—what more could you ask for in a side dish, and a healthy one at that. Besides going wonderfully with a harvest supper, this cabbage dish would be perfect for a picnic or tailgate, because there’s no mayonnaise involved that would require refrigeration. Dan, our maintenance man, said it would be a tasty addition to a sandwich.

The recipe is from the out-of-print Keepsake Quilting™ Cookbook published as a charitable fund-raiser in 2001.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1-1/4 pounds red cabbage,
cored and chopped
1 apple, peeled, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 cup water

Sauté the onion in the butter in a large skillet for 1 minute. Add the cabbage and apple and sauté for 5 minutes. Combine the salt, brown sugar, cider vinegar and water in a small bowl and mix well. Stir the mixture into the cabbage mixture and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

Yield: 6 servings

  1. Looking for a recipe I found called Chocolate pudding cake. It was in an out of print recipe from the Hungry Quilter. Can you help?? Also, how can I get the Hungry Quilter cookbooks?? Thank you in advance.

    1. Good Morning Marlene,

      You may be thinking of our Hot Fudge Cake Recipe, which is described as “cake, but it’s also a brownie, it’s pudding, and it’s hot fudge, too!” We’ll feature this recipe on the blog later today for you. Since the cookbook is out of print, the best way to find a copy would be to search for it on eBay or Amazon. A quick search this morning brought up many used and new options on Amazon, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a copy!
