Here's my favorite *Red Cabbage With Apples*
1-2 1/2 lb. head red cabbage, shredded
3/4 cup boiling water
3 sliced, pared, cored large cooking apples
1 T Olive Oil (Works find without it if fat is critical)
1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
1 1/2 tsp flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp salt
speck of pepper
Put shredded cabbage in heavy kettle. Add water; cook, covered, 10 min.
