Weinkraut (white cabbage with wine), makes 6-8 servings

This is one of my absolute favorite fall/winter dishes. It's cabbage season, so they look good and they are cheap. Carina, this one is especially for you.
You will need:

4 slices of bacon
1 medium onion
1 medium sized white cabbage
1 cup of white wine
3 - 4 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
salt/pepper to taste
a big pot

Dice your bacon slices, chop your onion. Over medium heat, sautee the bacon and onion in a big pot until onion is translucent. While that's cooking. Take of the outer leaves of your cabbage. Cut it in half and cut out the core (the big white hard piece) and cut both halfs in stripes. Rinse. Add to your pot, stir and sautee for 5-10 minutes. Make sure you scrape the brown stuff off the bottom of the pot, to get all the flavor from your bacon. Now add the wine and stock until cabbage is just about covered. Turn to lower heat, cover and let it cook for about 30 -45 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Done!

I use this as a side dish with potatoes and sausage, but it also makes a great soup! Just add some smoked sausage or potato. This makes such a big serving, I eat it as a side and as a soup later. This is a great dish to freeze, to me it tastes even better reheated or the next day :)
