For the apple red cabbage, first clean the red cabbage and cut into strips. Core apples and cut into fine wedges (or dice, depending on taste). Slice the onion and fry in lard until translucent. Add just under 250 ml of water.
Bring to a boil and mix with the spices, vinegar and sugar. Add red cabbage and apples. Cover the saucepan. Simmer for 60 minutes until tender. Stir occasionally during this process. Bind the apple-red cabbage with cornstarch and season.
The apple red cabbage goes perfectly with game and other meat dishes.
