Ingredients

  • 1 (2 pound) red cabbage

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar

  • 1 cup cranberry juice

  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste

  • salt to taste

Directions

  1. Remove the outer set of leaves of cabbage and discard. Cut cabbage quarters; remove and discard white stem. Chop remaining cabbage finely.

  2. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Cook and stir cabbage in melted butter until softened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour vinegar over cabbage and stir to coat. Add cranberry juice and sugar to the pot. Season cabbage mixture with salt.

  3. Reduce heat to low, place a cover on the pot, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is completely tender, 60 to 75 minutes. Add more sugar towards the end if it is tart.
