Easy Pickled Cabbage

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 1 small head red cabbage, sliced
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 dried bay leaf


  1. In a medium-sized pot placed over medium-high heat, dissolve sugar and salt in water and vinegar. Bring to a boil.
  2. As the vinegar-water mixture heats, thoroughly wash your cabbage and slice it into thin strips.
  3. Peel and smash whole garlic cloves. Place cabbage and garlic in mason jars along with peppercorns and a bay leaf.
  4. When vinegar-water mixture reaches a boil, remove from heat and pour over cabbage and garlic, leaving 1/2-inch of empty space at the top. Tightly seal jars, let cool to room temperature, and store in the fridge for up to one month.
