4 med apples, peeled and sliced

½ red onion, chopped

1 head red cabbage, finely shredded

1 cup red wine (opt.)

4 whole cloves

1/3 c brown sugar

2 bay leaves

¼ cup vinegar

¼ cup butter

Juice of ½ lemon

Sliced or cubed cooked pork roast (opt.)

Melt butter in 4 quart Dutch oven. Add apples and onion sauté slightly.  Add cabbage, red wine, cloves, sugar and bay leaves.  Simmer covered for about 1 hour, then add the remaining ingredients.  Heat to melt the butter and serve immediately.  Makes 6 servings. Note: For a hearty main dish, add sliced or cubed cooked pork roast, as much as desired, during the last hour.
