half. Shred finely and soak in salted water for 15 minutes. Drain
Heat the bacon fat or butter in a large, heavy skillet and add 1
finely chopped onion. Cook onion until transparent, about 5 minutes,

not peeled. Sprinkle with brown sugar, and add wine vinegar and
caraway seeds. Cover, with lid slightly askew, and simmer over low
heat for about 45 minutes. Serves 8 and is good hot or cold.
