This truly is a dish that screams fall, even in the late summer :-) I served this with two beautiful pork steaks, and whole peeled potatoes, boiled with turmeric, parsley and butter.

This time I used Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale “ trying to get into a fall kind of mood “ but you can use any kind you like.

If you don’t want to use beer you can use water, chicken broth or vegetable broth.

I am sorry I don’t have any pictures to go along with this dish, but I was juggling making this dish, plus another one to freeze, and trying to get some “ domestic goddess” stuff done as well.

How to Make Warm autumn bake


  1. Remove the core and slice the cabbage into ½ inch slices. If you have a food processor this will really go fast.
  2. Peel and slice the apples put them in some cold water till you are ready to assemble the casserole. When you are ready to put the dish together, drain the apples thoroughly.
  3. Cook the beer, 1/2 of the apple sauce & the OJ on low till it is really thick, and reduced by ½. Set aside.
  4. Sauté the onion, garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg, caraway seeds & sugar in the butter plus 3 tablespoons of the beer, apple sauce mixture, till the onions are soft and translucent. Add the onion mixture to the remaining beer apple sauce mixture, mix well and set aside.
  5. Spray a casserole dish with a non stick spray.
  6. Layer in the following order. First put some of the cabbage and apples in the pan. Cover with ½ of the beer mixture, then cabbage & apples, cover with the rest of the beer mixture.
  7. Then cover with the remaining apple sauce.
  8. Pour the ½ of the 12 ounce can or bottle of 7 UP down the side of the cabbage dish.
  9. Cover with foil and bake 350 for 1 & ½ hours, or till the cabbage is tender and the top is all bubbly and brown.
  10. The baking time will depend on your oven, and how big you slice the cabbage.
