Braised Cabbage:   brcab

Slice a medium size cabbage (any kind) and an onion into long strips or chunks. Layer the cabbage and onion over the bottom of a cast iron or oven proof baking dish with 2-3 tablespoons butter or 2-3 strips of bacon diced into small cubes dispersed throughout. Pour in ½ cup water. Drizzle honey over the top, followed by a few shakes of salt and pepper, and a hardy pour of balsamic vinegar (about 3 Tbs). Top the pile off with some pickled or fresh jalapenos (optional). Cover with aluminum foil and place in the oven at 325 F for 2-3 hours. You can add carrots to this dish too, if you wish.
