Directions:
In a large sauce pan, add 1 tbs. of oil, and make sure it covers the bottom of the the pan. Add bacon and fry it so it's crisp. Remove the bacon and add the chopped onion, and fry it until it's soft. Shred the red cabbage (shred by hand, not with a food processor). Place shredded cabbage in the hot pan in which the bacon was fried, keep the heat on medium. Stir until the cabbage wilts. Add the chopped apples, sugar, salt, pepper, and red wine vinegar then lower the heat to steam the cabbage. Stir frequently to prevent burning. Steam for two hours. 1/4 cup of hot water may be added to encourage the steaming process. Add the bacon. Transfer the cabbage to a serving bowl, cover with plastic and refrigerate over night. To serve: Reheat the following day.
