Red Cabbage with Apples

This dish will make cabbage-lovers out of all those that think they hate cabbage. It's beautiful when served alongside roasted pork or poultry, garnished with deep green parsley against its royal purpleness.
Yield 6 servings

1 small red cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 firm, tart apples (Macintosh or Granny Smith are perfect), peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dry red wine or red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons butter
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Parsley sprigs for garnish (optional)

1 Combine all ingredients except butter and pepper in large, heavy pot. Cook over medium heat until just tender, 20 to 25 minutes. (Can be made to this point 1 day ahead.)
2 Add butter and cook for 5 minutes. Season to taste with pepper.
