“Norwegian Christmas Cabbage is essentially a kind of sweet and sour sauerkraut, spiced with caraway seeds.” - by Finn Roed
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Lay two slices of bacon across the bottom of a large pot. Cover with a layer of cabbage. Sprinkle a light dusting of flour and a pinch of caraway seed. Season with a little salt and pepper. Repeat layering as many times as possible until you run out of room.
- Fill the pot with enough water to come about 3/4 up the side. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 45 minutes, or until the cabbage is soft, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly, then stir in the vinegar and sugar. Use your own judgment. Add sugar carefully to taste. The idea is to strike a balance between the sweet and the sour, and therein lies the trick.

"I took ideas from a few of the previous reviews to make this cabbage and it was delicious! I used bacon pieces instead of strips, apple cider vinegar and Splenda instead of sugar (Splenda is somewhat..." See more sweeter than suger so be careful). I also threw in a vegetable bouillon cube and used less salt; instead of pouring salt on all layer, I salted 2 of 4 layers. I don't think you need as much flour as the recipe calls for; next time, I'll use half. Also, I could have thrown in another head of cabbage after the first head boiled down to even out the juice. Even though there are some things that I would do differently next time, this was still the best cabbage I've made and I've made a lot of cabbage! You can not go wrong with following the recipe verbatim."

"This is a great cabbage recipe. Since my husband and I are on Weight Watchers, I leave out the bacon and use Splenda instead of the sugar.
