White and Wintry

Last time this year we were already through a rather horrible 4-5 day ice-rain-snow fiasco, but this time round if I want to see anything white or wintry, I have to go back to my favorites collection. Hope you like these.

Journal Entry

Since my fall and winter so far have been fairly uneventful and I don't want to add to the overall bellyache about the new wonky DA logo (like a stoned or punch-drunk Excel "X" in my opinion...) I wanted to share a winter recipe from home with everyone.

At least it gives me a nice non-controversial pretext to change out my journal! This dish is a typical winter food in Germany and goes well with mashed potatoes or potato dumplings and pork chops or any kind of roast.

Red Cabbage with Holiday Spices

1 head of red cabbage
1 firm apple (you can go sour or sweet with this, but mealy apples are not so good as they will disintegrate during cooking)
1 large sweet onion
1/2 stick of butter
3 heaped tablespoons of dark brown sugar
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
5 bay leaves
9 cloves
1 stick cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste

Shred the cabbage into small pieces (about 1/2 inch), finely chop the onion and core and cut the apple into pieces about the same size as the cabbage.

Heat the butter in a pot large enough to hold all of the shredded cabbage and other ingredients and saute until glassy. Add the cabbage, the apple, the sugar and vinegar and all of the spices except the pepper and salt and stir well to combine. Reduce the heat so everything can simmer together but does not burn. Close the lid on the pot and just open occasionally to stir the mix.

Let cook for about 20-30 minutes until the cabbage is soft but not mushy. Adjust taste with salt and pepper (or more sugar) as needed, fish out the cinnamon, cloves and bay leaves and serve.


Here's to wishing all my Deviant Art friends and their families happy and peaceful holidays and a successful and creative 2015!

I hope beauty chases you while you chase it, and that wonder and majesty leave your quest for glory very successful.  
I hope you find many fun things to do, many wonderful sights to see, and many extraordinary people with whom to interact in positive ways.  
May the unexpected always turn out to be good.  
I hope this year is one of successful efforts to improve, new friendships made, old friendships renewed, and may you and those you love have a wonderful ride together around the sun in the year beginning with this day - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW 2015 YEAR! by Dark-Arctic-Fox
