How to make Sweet and Sour Cabbage?
Shred the cabbage finely, and wash well. Melt the fat in a thick-bottomed pan, add the sugar, and watch carefully over a fairly low heat until sugar turns brown, stirring it from middle to sides as it changes colour. Then throw in the cabbage, which will sizzle fiercely for a minute.Toss it around with a spoon until all the shreds are shiny with fat, then add the cider (or wine), the vinegar and the seasonings.
Continue cooking gently until the cabbage is almost tender (20 to 30 minutes), then add the flour-water mix. As this will tend to dry up on the bottom of the pan, cook over very low heat. Now cook for another 10 minutes, and serve in a well heated glass serving dish.
