Rancho Santa Fe Fresh Market Recipe

Braised Apples and Purple Cabbage

RSFFM Braised Apples and Purple Cabbage


  • 2 lb Purple cabbage (African Sisters)
  • 1 lb Granny Smith Apples (Smit Farms)
  • 1 lb onion, chopped (Valdivia or African Sisters Farms)
  • 1 clove garlic minced (Valdivia)
  • 1/2 of a whole nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons wine vinegar (Thyme of Essence)
  • 1/2 oz (15g) French Butter (Franc’s Cheeses)
  • Himalayan Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (Thyme of Essence)
To Prepare:


First discard the tough outer leaves of the cabbage, cut it into quarters and remove the hard stalk. Then shred the rest of the cabbage finely.

Next, in a fairly large casserole, arrange a layer of shredded cabbage seasoned with salt and pepper, then a layer of chopped onions and apples with a sprinkling of garlic, spices and sugar. Continue with these alternate layers until everything is in. Now pour in the wine vinegar, lastly add dots of butter on the top.

Put a tight lid on the casserole and let it cook very slowly in the oven for 2-2½ hours, stirring everything around once or twice during the cooking.

Great recipe for making the day ahead and re-heating when you are ready to use.

Bon Appetite!

Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet Of The Week

Good “Karma” Awaits Her Rewards!


Look into her eyes and fall in love with Karma, the Pet-of-the-Week available at Helen Woodward Animal Center.  This 6 year-old Australian Shepherd blend is as pretty as a spring flower, with a stunning brindle coat she loves to have scratched and petted.  She’s a low-key kind of girl who enjoys lying in the sun with her people and soaking up the beauty in life. The family that adopts her is sure to have their love returned tenfold, that’s just how this sweet girl rolls.

Karma is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been altered and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations.  Her adoption fee is $284, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, she is micro-chipped for identification.  As an added bonus, she also comes with two free passes to Sea World!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 6pm

Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1 or visit www.animalcenter.org.
