The way my grandma made rodkaal:
Shred the cabbage, marinate it in 2:1 water vinegar with onion and caraway seeds, drain (save that). Melt a clump of butter in a skillet, add the same amount of sugar as the clump of butter. Add the marinated cabbage. Add the marinade. Add 1-2 shredded apples, 1 onion. more caraway seeds to taste. Simmer until the cabbage and onion are soft. Stir in a couple of BIG T of lignonberry jelly (or red current jelly if you don't have lignonberry jelly), salt, and pepper to taste. If you want, a splash of red wine. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes. Serve hot, warm, or cold (hot as a side, warm with lunch, cold on top of a sandwich).
looking good, cws, and vibrant colors, too! your marinated red cabbage has me over the MOON....

Marinated red cabbage is so handy. Make up a batch from an entire red cabbage and it will be good in the fridge for weeks. Make it the way CWS makes it or use my simpler, Danish recipe: Danish Red Cabbage - Rødkål (Roedkaal)

I like to make sure I always have some in the fridge. Don't feel like making a vegi dish? Nuke some red cabbage

TaxLady's instructions are so much more inclusive--no, you don't use the core. I didn't mention that. I love marinated cabbage. I haven't tried freezing it--does that work TL?

My grandma also made a "surkaal" dish with green cabbage. For that, she would shred it, melt butter (or bacon fat) in a skillet, add a layer of shredded cabbage, some flour, caraway seeds, salt and pepper. She'd repeat these layers and add more butter or pork roast drippings. She'd cook that until the cabbage was tender, and then add equal amounts of vinegar and sugar, blend it, being careful not to make everything mushy, simmer about 5 minutes--adjust salt and pepper, more liquid if needed. I usually make this for a side with turkey or chicken. I want marinated red cabbage with pork always!

I don't think it should be frozen. I have never heard of it and Danes would be selling it in the freezer section if it could be frozen. I think it would spoil the texture. But, it's good for a long time in the fridge or you could can it. Most Danes can't be bothered making it nowadays since you can buy a good tasting jar of it in any Danish supermarket. (But, I didn't think it was quite as good as mine )

My mum was Danish and my dad was Swedish. I spent a half a year in Denmark when I was a year old and learned to talk there. I spent a couple of summer half years in Denmark as a kid. I lived there for five years before moving to Canada.
