Remove and discard tough outer leaves from cabbage. Shred cabbage very fine. In large pot, melt butter. Add sugar, but do not brown. Add cabbage and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vinegar, water, salt, and pepper. Simmer covered for 2-3 hours or until cabbage is very tender. Stir occasionally and, if necessary, add a little hot water to prevent scorching. When cabbage is almost tender, add apples and red currant jelly. Cabbage should be quite sweet-sour. If necessary, add more sugar or vinegar. Simmer covered for 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
