  • 4 pounds organic red cabbage, cut into julienne
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 organic Granny Smith apples, sliced
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 teaspoons ginger powder

  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Heat a heavy casserole. Add peanut oil. Sauté red onion until translucent. Sprinkle in brown sugar and cook for a few minutes until it starts to caramelize.

    Add sliced apples and deglaze with the red wine vinegar. Bring to a boil. Add red wine and orange juice, cinnamon stick, ginger powder and salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes.
