Add Some Flavor To Your St. Patrick's Day Cabbage With Golden Blossom Honey

I married into an Irish family, and around here, St. Patrick's Day is kind of a big deal. It wasn't something I really celebrated growing up, unless you count making sure you had green on so you didn't come home all bruised up from those tiny little pinches you had to try to dodge all day at school if you made the mistake of forgetting your green. After I got married, I really embraced the holiday and just love everything about it. Trying to catch a leprechaun, clovers, green beer, and of course, the food!  Throughout the year, we really love to have shepherd's pie several times a month for dinner, but like most other folks, we always have corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. It's tradition, you know.


I tend to stick to our same old family recipes on special occasions, but I stumbled across a new recipe on Golden Blossom Honey for Sauteed Crunchy Cabbage & Apples and knew it was something I really wanted to serve this year with our traditional corned beef dinner.


Cabbage recipe


The addition of apples adds a touch of sweetness, a pop of color, and gives the dish an extra boost of crunch, which I just love!




Ingredients


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 red skinned apples such as Macintosh, unpeeled, halved
1 small head green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced or shredded
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
salt and pepper, to taste

What will you be serving for St. Patrick's Day dinner?

  1. The apples do give it a nice color (and crunch value), I agree! What's the plant? Those look like Clover leaves, but I know clovers are so tiny. Is it Shamrock?

    Love the recipe, pinning it.

    1. Hahaha! It's a fake plant Rosey! They are supposed to be little shamrocks. At least I think. Just going for a little St. Patrick's Day flare in the photo :)

  4. That looks great! I bet that would encourage my kids to eat cabbage!!

  5. That sounds really really good--I can just imagine the combination the apples and cabbage make when it hits your taste buds. Of course honey makes everything taste better!!

  6. This looks really good. It would curb a sweet tooth and still be healthy.

    1. You don't like the flavor, or it doesn't agree with you? Sometimes, it doesn't agree with me, so I eat it sparingly, but it is one of my favorite veggies!

    2. it ruins my tummy :( Had to take a probiotic pill yesterday because of it :( And I made something that I love to eat but never do: finely sliced cabbage fried on a bit of oil with salt and some sugar and mixed with pasta.

    3. Ouch. I have the exact same thing with eggs. But then in a diferent way because I almost suffacate when I eat them. It's an allergic reaction...

      Hi Theresa.

    4. did you try with ostrich eggs? :) I rarely eat eggs, Blue, maybe one a month... and eventually I will stop for good....

    5. No, thank you. You will have to eggscuse me.

      Delete
    6. That really stinks when something you just love doesn't agree with you. I have a lot of foods like that. Even those eggs that blue is talking about. They are fine when I bake them in recipes, but if I scramble them or sunny side up, nope. Sends my tummy into a fritz!

  21. Cabbage and I had to part ways, but I was wondering... do you use a little lemon juice to keep the apple pieces from turning brown?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I didn't use lemon juice here. I diced them right before it was time to add to the pan, so the oxygen didn't have time to make them look all icky brown.

  22. I would definitely try this recipe since I enjoy eating cabbage. This recipe sounds good.

    ReplyDelete

  35. No one really paid attention to St Patrick's day at my school. Although Australia doesn't have as much of an Irish influence as America does.

  36. Neat recipe. We don't do much for St. Patrick's Day at our place but this looks like a nice recipe to try out. I happen to have some cabbage to use up in my fridge.
