Tasty! One of those recipes that's fun to play with and change around. All the ingredients are "every day" and readily on hand. In fact I decided to make it late this afternoon. Anonymous Maitland FL Read More

This recipe needed some help I had all the ingredients for this recipe except for the cabbage which I picked up on a trip to the grocery store. Upon completion all I could taste was caraway; the cabbage just soaked up the vinegar and I couldn't taste it at all. I added probably another quarter cup of vinegar and a bit of Splenda to give it a little sweet-and-sour flavor and that improved things quite a lot. My husband said he didn't think he would like it but he really enjoyed this dish. I'll make it again it went great with pork chops but I'll continue to bump it up a notch. Pros: Great flavor after additions Cons: Not enough vinegar Read More

If you are suggesting a serving contains Omega three's you may wish to omit the toasting of the walnuts. As I understand it the heating process reduces the fragile walnut oils so there there are less Omega three's present. Anonymous Media PA Read More

Actually the recipe is Flemish; this one is a German fantasy.. We cook the cabbage with the (sweet) apples (slow simmer) and yes you can add any kind of vinegar but do add the walnuts at the end. Anonymous Antwerp Read More

I have always liked red cabbage and often serve it cooked with apple red wine vinegar and a smidgen of brown sugar. Now I'm serving this delicious warm salad as the starter to the meal. Thank you. Anonymous Toronto Canada On Read More

Very tasty quick and easy. I always have red wine vinegar (for my Greek pasta salad) caraway seeds (for my rye bread) and dijon mustard (I prefer this to plain yellow mustard))in the pantry. Thanks for a great way to fix one of my favorite veggies. Anonymous Marysville OH Read More
