This recipe makes for a great veggie side. The apple adds a nice flavour to otherwise bland cabbage and of course bacon makes everything taste good!

Even my mom who is skeptical about cabbage loved this! I did change a few things up however. I omitted the coconut oil, b/c w/ bacon, I feel that it is unnecessary. Left out garlic. I cooked the bacon and onion, added cabbage and apples like it said, and then when I added the vinegar and sugar mixture, I tossed it and coated it in the pan and then added to the crock pot on low for 4-5 hours and the cabbage and apples got really nice and tender. The things I'd do differently next time are add only one apple and use a Granny smith l ( I accidentally used a sweeter variety and it was too sweet for my liking ). Read More

Made this just as written with green apples because that's what I had on hand. My husband said it is the best cabbage I've ever made. Kinda helps when I'm having a cocktail while cooking I guess Read More
