Danish Braised Red Cabbage Recipe

1 medium-sized head red cabbage
4 tablespoons margarine (or butter)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup currant jelly
2 tablespoons grated apple

Clean cabbage, removing the outer leaves, and cut cabbage in half. Shred each half with knife or in food processor.

Combine margarine, sugar, salt, water and vinegar in large saucepan. When mixture comes to a boil, add shredded cabbage and toss thoroughly. Bring to a boil again; place in a casserole dish or roasting pan, cover tightly, and bake at 325°F for 2 hours. Check liquid level periodically and add water if necessary.

When cooked, stir in jelly and grated apple. Cover and continue baking for 10 minutes. Remove cover and let sit an additional 10 minutes before serving.
