Prep all your vegetables –

Slice /chop or food process all the vegetables – This is a personal choice as it all depends on how you want to eat it and how big you want the pieces – just as note though if it is sliced by the food processor you will get a slightly faster cook due to its size being smaller and more uniform.

Lightly sauté the red onion in some oil, then add your apples and garlic and stir those in for a few minutes.

Add all of your cabbage prepped to your liking with the spices.

Add the apple cider vinegar and water (sometimes I also add some apple juice if I have some on hand)

Bring to a simmer then put the lid on and let cook on Med. Heat until the cabbage is tender. * This dish can take a white to make depending on how much you make.  I like to take the lid off 10 minutes before the end to let some of the liquid evaporate.
