Cabbages With Apples


  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 2 or 3 ounces of butter
  • 4 or 5 apples peeled, quartered, and cored
  • salt
  • sugar


Blanch the cabbage for about ten minutes and drain it. Put the butter in a saucepan on the fire, and put the cabbage in when the butter is melted with the apples; also a little salt and a little sugar, about half a pint of water or broth, boil gently till done, and serve as warm as possible. Generally, cabbages are better when prepared at least one day in advance, and then warmed in a bain-marie before serving; a little butter may be added while it is warming. Any kind of cabbage is prepared as directed in the above ways.
