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

      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!
