Grandma Hansen's Red Cabbage Recipe

Grandma Hansen's Red Cabbage. ( Danish )

1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup unsalted cultured butter (European Style)
1/3 cup RED Currant JELLY (not jam)
1 head RED cabbage (purple)

Shred cabbage - don't use the solid core part.
In large pot on stovetop - melt butter and jelly in the vinegar over medium heat.
Add cabbage to the pot and turn up heat to high temp - stirring continually -
there will be moisture on the bottom of the pot - keep cooking and stirring till moisture is gone and the butter gives the cabbage a nice shine.
Season with salt to your taste.
Adding other flavours to this is by personal choice and/or which household you grew up in.
Cinnamon sticks - Ground cloves - Ground cardamom - Raisins - Apple chunks - Caraway seeds - Ground allspice - Or any other fave flavour you enjoy !
Simmer this at low heat or keep warm in a crock pot on low if you need burner space at the stove.
Serve cold as a relish to use up leftovers.
The oldest person in the house gets first taste to be able to tell the cook if they have the flavour right on or needs more tweaking.

Whoever cooked it gave a taste to Grandma Hansen for her OK !
"Bedstemor" = Grandma

Glædelig Jul
