1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
1 tablespoons dried culinary lavender buds, finely ground in a spice grinder

Add onion, lavender, caraway seeds, and mustard seeds to skillet. Cook 5 minutes or until onion softens. Whisk in flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes to remove starchy taste of flour. Stir in vinegar, sugar, and broth. Season with salt and pepper. Add cabbage and apples. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, tossing cabbage with tongs to wilt it. Stir in parsley just before serving.
