Side Dish - Red Cabbage and Onions

My DIL made this. Can't remember where I found recipes, but I mixed them all up.

1 head of red cabbage - quartered, cored, and chopped into about 1 inch pieces
2 sweet onions (we used 2 big purple onions), diced
2-4 tart apples (we used 3 Granny Smiths), cored and cut into about 1 inch chunks
"some" butter
3 cloves garlic (well, most of the recipes called for 1, but since we love garlic...), minced
1/3 c honey
1/3 c water
1/3 c red wine vinegar
1 tbs caraway seeds

Mix the honey, water and vinegar and set aside.
Heat butter in a largish pot (we used my big 8 gal stockpot) and saute the onions and garlic together, then start adding the cabbage. Stir fry for about 5 minutes, remove and add some more cabbage. Keep going until all the cabbage has been stir-fried.
Put all the cabbage back in the pot and add the apples. Add caraway seeds to the honey/water/vinegar mixture, and pour it all into the pot with the cabbage.
Cover and cook on low for about 1 - 2 hours - stirring occasionally.

Cheerio!
