From the Test Kitchen

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and large dice the potatoes. Quarter and core the apple; thinly slice lengthwise. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves.

2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add half the butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm.

While the potatoes cook, in a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced apple and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Add the cabbage:
4 Add the cabbage:

Add the sliced cabbage to the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in the vinegar, sugar, and ¼ cup of water. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil (or a lid) and cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until softened; season with salt and pepper to taste.
