Great Aunt Emma's Piquant Cabbage

Submitted by MzDeeMeanor


1 medium head of cabbage
3 Tablespoons of butter
1 tart apple
6 whole cloves
1/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
Wash and shred cabbage, cook for 10 minutes. ( I cook mine in a deep Teflon Wok )  Drain and add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the cloves and serve.  Serves 6.
I core the apple, cut it in quarters and then cut into slices as you would for pie. I also leave the skin on the apple, just for color.
