******* In a large pot, melt the butter, onions and apples together. Simmer for 10 minutes.
***** When the onions are clear, add the red cabbage, brown sugar, vinegar and chicken broth, and mix together.
***** Set on medium heat to evaporate the liquids while stirring. You can season with salt and pepper as the cabbage simmers so it has some flavoring. While simmering, check to see if any more salt is required. Between the salt, vinegar, apples and sugar, it should have a sweet-and-sour balance to it.
***** Continue to simmer until all liquid is reduced, leaving soft, fully braised cabbage. Hold in a covered pot.
