  • 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.

  • 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.

I think there's an ingredient error in this recipe. It calls for "1/4 drop distilled white vinegar"...I added 1/4 cup, it tasted fine, and I thought it had just the right amount of tartness. Hopefully, AR will get this corrected. Read More

I'm on a diet where I can eat ALL the low GI Veggies I want and not a whole lot more. So the cranberry juice that already has sugar in it wasn't an option for me but I did have whole cranberries in the freezer from the Holidays so I swapped in those and added just a touch of honey. I also preferred it cold and added walnuts on top. Read More

Love this recipe.It reminds me of my childhood when my German grandmother would make it for us. I did have to add a little more sugar to make it taste just like my grandmothers. My family loves it. Read More

I ground some fresh cranberries in water to make the cranberry juice and used honey in place of the sugar. This is a really good tasting dish! Read More

Will make it again. Used balsamic vinegar instead of white vinegar which was an interesting twist. Cooking time depends on the texture you desire. Cooked less more crunch. Read More
