A nice tangy dish with a touch of sweetness. It may seem like a lot of cabbage, but will reduce by about fifty percent during cooking.


Yield: serves 8



  • 8 oz. (200 g) bacon, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 10-12 C. thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1 T. mustard
  • 1/2 C. (125 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 C. (60 g) sugar
  • 1/4 C. (65 ml) honey




1. In a large skillet, brown the bacon over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion and continue cooking until onion is translu- cent.

2. Add half the cabbage and sauté until reduced in volume. Add the remaining cabbage and sauté 2-3 minutes more.

3. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, vinegar, sugar, and honey. Pour over cabbage; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer until liquid is absorbed or evaporated.
