Sweet and Sour Braised Red Cabbage

This is a wonderful accompaniment to brisket or chicken, and can be made ahead for the holidays. I can still smell and taste all the delicious dishes my stepmother, Pam, would make every Friday, when my older brothers and sister would all come home for shabbat dinner. Happy times. I see now that many of the recipes she made were from Cooking with Myrna Rosen, known as “The Cooking Bible” in South Africa. Does anyone remember this book? When I moved to Los Angeles and Pam gave me this wonderful cookbook, I found the recipes very intimidating. Very little detail, no pictures—and no one to show me! I wish that I had been as interested in cooking when I was growing up as I am now. That’s one of the reasons I always try to involve my toddler in what I’m making. It warmed my heart when she asked me for a toy vegetable peeler; I couldn’t find one anywhere, so I promised her she could peel the carrots next time. I figure at 3 1/2, she’s ready! I’ve included all the details that I wished I would have had when I first made this—hopefully any newbies out there will find this helpful. Enjoy!
