Crockpot Cabbage and Apples

Serves 8-10


  • 1 head of purple cabbage coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup onion chopped (I used a whole yellow onion)
  • 6 Gala apples cored and quartered (optional: I chose to peel them)
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 6 tbsp butter or bacon drippings melted
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt


  • Add chopped cabbage, onions, and apples to a large greased slow cooker.
  • Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over cabbage.
  • Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  • Stir well before serving.


To speed up cook time I cooked on high for 3 hours, stirred cabbage, then low for 3 hours.
