 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Red cabbage
      1/4   lb           Bacon -- sliced
    1                    Onion
   20                    Cloves
    2                    Apples
    1       t            Lemon juice
 
      Cut up the bacon into little «-inch pieces and fry
   slowly in the bottom of a large pot while you... Peel
   the onion and stab the cloves into it (15-30 cloves).
      Put the onion into the pot and let it warm with the
   bacon while you... Cut up the cabbage into roughly
   bite-sized chunks - somewhat thicker slices than for
   slaw.
      Put the cabbage in the pot and add enough water to
   about half-cover the cabbage; then turn the heat up
   high. But don't go away!
      Quarter, core and peel the apples. Toss them in on
   top of the cabbage with a small handful (about a 1/2
   teaspoon) of salt. Sprinkle the lemon juice over it
   all.
      By this time the water should be boiling. Turn down
   the heat and put a lid on the pot.
      Go away and let it cook for 10 minutes. Stir 'n
   sniff. Cover and let it cook another 10 minutes.
      Now you can serve it “as is”, or you can ladle out
   part of the liquid, thicken it with cornstarch or
   arrow-root, and stir it back in.
