Re:German red cabbage
Here's how I do it.
Shred the red cabbage and put it in a sauce pan. Add some salt to get the juices flowing. Add one or two chopped apples, peeled or not, your choice. Add three tablespoons of brown sugar, and three tablespoons of cider vinegar, Splash in a bit of water to get things going. Cover and simmer until the cabbage is tender.
