  • STEP 1

    Remove outer leaves of cabbage. Chop or coarsely grate cabbage.

  • STEP 2

    In a large Dutch oven-sized pot, melt margarine. Add cabbage, apples and vinegar. Allow some cabbage to cook and shrink down if necessary before adding more cabbage. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour or until cabbage is soft.

  • STEP 3

    Stir in sugar and salt to taste and allow to cook until dissolved.

  • STEP 4

    Divide into meal-sized portions and freeze any cabbage that won’t be served immediately. Simply thaw and reheat to serve later.
