Green Cabbage Stew

This is a wonderful wintry dish:

Fry smoked bacon in its own lard, or in a little vegetable oil, until it has given off its own fat and it is crisp. Fry chopped onion in the fat until soft and brown, with curry powder to taste. Add a pressed clove of garlic and chopped (green) cabbage and stew until softening. Add peeled slices of apple of a tart-sweet variety. Cook until all ingredients are done. Season with salt and pepper.

The secret is the saltiness of the bacon combined with the sweetness of the apple. Raisins would do the same trick!

Delicious with potatoes boiled in the skin.
