This is one of my favorite side dishes and it is so easy to make and it freezes well too.
1 Med head red cabbage shredded
1 med apple peeled and chopped
3 strips of bacon
~1/3-1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
In a pot, cook bacon. Put aside and reserve 1 Tbs bacon fat in the bottom of the pot. Add red cabbage, apple, vinegar, sugar, and crumble in the bacon. Cook covered on low, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste. I usually let it cook about 45 min to 1 hour because I like the cabbage really soft.
