Directions:
In a large saucepan over medium heat cook bacon until lightly browned, but not crispy, about 4 min. Add the cabbage, onion and apples. Stir well to coat with bacon drippings. Cover and cook until the vegetables and apples are limp, about 15 minutes. Add the vinegar, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Stir well, then season with salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook for another 20 minutes. The dish is now ready to serve, or held at this stage for an hour or more. If holding, add several additional tablespoons of vinegar or water to keep moist. Serves 8 - 10
