Crockpot Spiced Red Cabbage, Apples & Pears

Crockpot Spiced Red Cabbage, Apples & Pears

I bought cabbage with the intention of making kraut this week but I got sidetracked, threw in some pickled onions and asparagus instead. No more room at the fermentation counter station, now what am I going to do with all of this cabbage?

I made another batch of Frizzy Cabbage Noodles with the green one. That was GOOD!

I decided to make this with the red cabbage and I’m really glad I did! I’m still trying to think of what this goes with so maybe you can help me. I bet this would be great on top of burgers, in a collard wrap, on top of bread (with my new Cheddar Cheeze!) or plain in a bowl… that’s how my kids like it! I like it on my oatmeal!

I might try adding this to my Veggie Breakfast Cake!

Crockpot Spiced Red Cabbage, Apples & Pears

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs red cabbage, thinly sliced/shredded
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 4 large apples, chopped with skin left on
  • 2 large pears, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp date sugar
  • 2 cups cinnamon applesauce
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp ground cloves
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar (balsamic would be good here too!)

Directions:

  1. Place shredded red cabbage in a large bowl.
  2. In another large bowl, combine the chopped onion, apple, pears and garlic together and mix well.
  3. Layer in crockpot in this order:
  4. Red cabbage, then sprinkle with salt & pepper
  5. Apples, pears, onions & garlic mixture, then the spices & 1 T date sugar.
  6. Keep layering this way until everything has been used up, pour the applesauce in about half way and spread as much as you can.
  7. Pour the red wine vinegar (or balsamic) over the top and close the lid.
  8. Cook on High for about 6 1/2 hours or until cabbage is nice and tender.

This freezes well too! I used a HUGE head of cabbage for mine and it made about 10 cups worth.
