Instructions

  1. First quarter the red cabbage and then remove the stalk with a sharp knife. Then cut the cabbage very finely, or even better, slice it. Clean and finely dice the onions and apples.
  2. In a large saucepan, leave out the diced bacon (without adding any extra fat). When all of the fat has leaked out and the cubes of bacon are brown, they can be removed from the pot. Then add the goose or crackling lard and clarified butter and melt. Now add the onion and apple cubes and sauté well over medium heat. Then add the cut red cabbage in portions and stir well. Add apple juice, red wine and applesauce and mix everything well. Now add the spices and let everything simmer covered for a good 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Then remove the lid and let the cabbage boil down until the liquid is reduced. Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar. Then remove the spices.
  4. As a tip for the spices: I like to take a large tea infuser and put the spices in there. In the end, you don`t have to look for the cloves, juniper berries, etc. to remove them again. Another tip: Prepare one day in advance and place in the refrigerator overnight. Tastes even better when warmed up!
