Red Cabbage with Apple and Bacon

Red Cabbage With Apple And Bacon

Two very similar versions of this recipe exist: one in Denmark and one in Landes, in southwest France. In both cases, it is served with grilled or roast pork or sausages.


  • 1 small red cabbage
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 Tbsp mustard seed
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg, grated
  • 1 orange zest (opt.)
  • 3 apples
  • ½ cup red wine
  • ¼ wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey (opt.)


  1. 1

    Clean cabbage. Slice the cabbage into 3-inch strips.

  2. 2

    Slice the bacon into 1-inch squares.

  3. 3

    Put a thick-bottomed pot on medium heat. Add bacon and sauté a few minutes until they render their fat. Add mustard seeds. When they begin to sizzle, add cabbage strips, sage, bay leaves, salt, pepper, nutmeg and orange zest. Stir well.

  4. 4

    Grate apples and add to the pot. Add wine, vinegar and maple syrup; incorporate. Reduce heat to low after about 5 minutes. Let steam in the pot until vegetables are tender, 20-30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Let stand a few more minutes before serving.
