Directions

  1. Place the cabbage in a large kettle, and add the diced apple, 2 teaspoons of the salt, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil then simmer, covered, about 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  2. In hot butter, saute the onion until golden. Add the onion to the cabbage along with 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, vinegar and sausage. Cook, covered, 20 to 30 minutes until sausage is heated through. To serve, spoon the cabbage onto a heated platter, topping it with the sausage.

This was great and easy to make! I followed another person's advice and cut my cabbage into chunks instead of shredded (would do that again!). I used 1 1/2 tsp. salt instead of 3, and thought 1 1/2 was perfect. I also prefer sliced onions instead of chopped. The apple cooked so much that it became mushy, so next time I will add it to the onions when I cook them. My family thought it needed more sausage, so next time I think I'll add another lb. The recipe sure did taste great, and was perfectly complimented by mashed potatoes and rye bread. Thanks for the recipe!

This is now my favorite recipe. I use whatever cabbage I have on hand and it is always good. I did end up cutting the salt in half, and I love salt! We eat it with potatoes on the side, covered in the extra juice. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

Better give this 5 stars, because my husband informed me that he wants to have this for breakfast, lunch and dinner from now on. I took the great advice of others and made just a couple of minor adjustments. I had a fairly large head of cabbage, so I doubled the recipe. But I, too, reduced salt. I added about 1 tsp. of caraway seed (really "makes" it)! Also, I used a large green apple, unpeeled and diced. I would use more apple next time. I added the apple when I put the cooked onions into the pot of cabbage. I used homemade broth instead of water, which added more flavor, and since I doubled it, there was lots of good juice to pour over our baked potatoes. Oh, and I used more vinegar. Delish!
