Red Cabbage and Onion Relish

By January 20, 2012Uncategorized

1 small head red cabbage
1 T unsalted butter
2 red onions, thinly sliced
1 T minced fresh dill
1 T cider vinegar
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 T honey

Tear away and discard the tough outer leaves of the cabbage. Cut the core out of the head, and slice the rest. Bring a large pot of water with a steamer basket to a boil over med. heat and steam the cabbage until cooked through, about 15 min. Turn it into a colander to drain thoroughly. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Sauté the onions and dill over med. heat , stirring often, until the onions are very soft, about 10 min. Add the drained cabbage and stir well to blend.  Stir in the cider vinegar, dried cherries, and honey. Cover and cook over med-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the relish rest for another 15 minutes so that the flavors can deepen. Serve at once or cover and serve well chilled.  From Almost Vegetarian by Diana Shaw
