1/2 red cabbage
2 Tbsp salt
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp caraway seeds
ground pepper to taste
vinegar to taste

• Thinly slice or coarsely shred the cabbage.
• Pour 1/4 cup of water on the cabbage and toss.
• Generously sprinkle with salt and toss.
• Let salted cabbage stand for 2 hours.
• With clean hands squeeze out all the moisture.
• In a saucepan, heat up the oil.
• Add the cabbage, sugar, caraway seeds and ground pepper.
• Do NOT add water. Cover and SLOWLY simmer.
• When the cabbage is “crunchy tender”, stir in a little vinegar to taste.
• Serve hot.

For those who are no fan of caraway seeds, grinding the seeds in a spice mill or in a coffee grinder is most beneficial.

and when fresh fruit is in abundance:


I treated 1 cup of chopped apricots with 1/2 Tbsp Fruit Fresh and 3 Tbsp sugar and let it stand for half an hour. Then I added the apricots to the pot just before serving. Very nice.


  1. I have looked everywhere for this recipe as it's one my father-in-law is very fond of. I never knew what it was called. I am thankful that looking through your blog helped me find it!

    1. This IS a nice dish. I am glad you found the recipe.

  2. I've just found your site, and I'm thrilled to see so many favourite foods. Thank you for sharing your recipes, and I look forward to trying this cabbage, and many others. I found the site when I was looking for a recipe for Kremes, what a treat they will be! Thank you again.

    1. Happy cooking and eating!

  3. When I was younger a friend made red cabbage and raisins but I'm not sure if this would be the same but with raisins soaked
