Cabbage is a healthy and delicious vegetable that can be enjoyed many different ways. If you're looking for some creative ways to prepare cabbage, try one (or more!) of these great recipe ideas!

Cabbage with Apples and Raisins


  • 1 head of cabbage (red or green, or a combination of the two)
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • ½ cup of raisins
  • ½ cups of water
  • ½ cup of apple cider (or apple juice)
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground allspice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation Instructions

Chop the cabbage. Peel and dice the onion. Remove the core from the apples and dice. Spray a stock pot with nonstick cooking spray and allow to heat. Add the onions and cook until crisp-tender over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Add the apples and cook for 3 -5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the cabbage and raisins, then add the remaining ingredients, stirring until well blended. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until cabbage reaches desired texture.

Cheddar Cabbage Casserole


  • 1 head of green cabbage
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the cabbage and place in a stock pot with several cups of boiling water. Boil for 5 minutes, then drain. While the cabbage is cooking, melt the butter and place in a 10 X 13 baking dish. Add the cabbage to the casserole dish. Add the milk and cheese, and stir well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake the dish for 30 minutes or until the casserole is hot and bubbly throughout. If desired, sprinkle with additional shredded cheddar prior to serving.

Slow Cooker German Cabbage

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • ¼ cup of white vinegar

Cook the bacon on the stovetop, reserving 3 tablespoons of bacon drippings. Crumble the bacon and set aside (refrigerate until just before serving). Chop the cabbage and dice the onion. Place in the slow cooker. Core and dice the apples and add to the slow cooker. Add the bacon drippings. Place remaining ingredients in the slow cooker – except for the crumbled bacon -- stirring gently to combine. Cover and simmer in the slow cooker on low for 6 – 8 hours. Stir in the crumbled bacon and serve.
