I thought about using in a dish yesterday but couldn't get it to make sense... That being said, tonight I think I have one that would work!

I did a little trading last week and in the score, I wound up with three of the biggest heads of cabbage I have ever seen. So, I need to find a way to use it.

Here is what I'm thinking.

In a jumbo cooker, start about a pound of beef sausage cut into bite size pieces (I'm sure any sausage would work but, this is what I have on hand). Cook on medium-high heat until it starts to grease the bottom of the pan. Add a few cut up potatoes and cut the heat to low-medium. This will allow the potatos to suck the grease and cook without burning. As the potatoes near done (still rather firm), add a layer of chopped cabbage. These heads are big so, maybe 1/3 a head. Pour in about a pint of apfelwein and season with salt and pepper. I like black pepper so, I would probably go a little overboard. Cover and let simmer until the cabbage is tender.

It's great with porkchops. You can do a nice pork/cider and garlic pan sauce with it. There's surprisingly a lot of recipes that call for hard cider, it's fun to use your own hard cider.
