Braised Red Cabbage with Cranberry and Juniper is my recipe of the day for the blogging event “Holiday Side Dish Week”. A bunch of  food  bloggers will be  posting three times this week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Monday I shared my recipe for Southern Collard Greens made in  the  Instant Pot. It is  traditional for many families in the South to serve greens as part of their  holiday meal. It is definitely a healthy choice.

Red Cabbage is less well know in the south except for perhaps certain parts of  Texas. Foods with German origins are mostly reserved for the Midwest in places like Ohio  and Pennsylvania.

In these places, red cabbage is perfectly suited to go with the holiday ham. Or perhaps a crown roast of pork, or perhaps even a pan of various types of sausages.

I love red  cabbage but I also love pork so they do go together for me. This might even go well as a little garnish of sorts on top of something  like schnitzel, fried green tomatoes or even on top of soup beans. You know me- I get creative with it.

This is another red cabbage with cranberry recipe which is different from what I am posting today as it included fresh cranberries rather than juice as the flavoring. I really enjoy the flavor combo. And I do make red cabbage any number of ways as I love it so much.
