SWEET AND SOUR RED CABBAGE
1 small head red cabbage, shredded
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, diced
1/2 cup cider or red wine vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
In a large nonstick saucepan in 1/4 inch water, over high heat, combine the cabbage, onion, apple, vinegar, and brown sugar; cover and steam for 15 to 25 minutes, adding more water if necessary, until tender.
To eat immediately, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup cool water until blended. Add the mixture to the finished cabbage and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds, until thickened.
If not using til the next day, before adding cornstarch, cover and refrigerate overnight. Then add cornstarch mixture, stirring until thickened, reheat, and serve immediately.
