Red Cabbage and Apples

1 large head red cabbage

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

3 sour green apples, peeled and chopped

4 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cups white vinegar

6 tbsp butter

1 tsp caraway seed

Cut off the bottom of the cabbage, remove the outer leaves, and discard them. Chop the rest of the cabbage coarsely. Put it in a stock pot, gently separating the leaves. You may need to pull out more of the tough center. Cook cabbage with salt and pepper in 1 cup water over low heat for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel and chop the apples and soak them in water with a little bit of citric acid to prevent browning. Add apples and remaining ingredients. Cook 20-30 minutes longer on very low heat, until apples are soft but not too mushy. Serve hot. Will do well in a crock pot on lowest setting for several hours.
