Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Well here it is, another braised red cabbage, but with boiled cider and raspberry vincotto vinegar. Sweet and tart = tangy!

You will be amazed how the layering of flavors bring out the best of this red cabbage.

It starts out by sautéing red onion in  butter then spiked up with minced garlic.

Then bring on the shredded red cabbage to start the delicious sauté.  Part one, of  this combination cooking method…braising.

And don’t forget the honey, it supports the the tartness of the cider and vinegar.

Part two of the brazing is the deglazing and simmering the red cabbage with fresh apple cider, punched up with the boiled cider and raspberry vincotto vinegar.

Now kick it up a notch with crushed red pepper, a few grinds of black fresh pepper and a kiss of sriracha. 

Now sit back and let the flavors develop…Yum!
