The braised red cabbage of Alsace, counterbalances the fattiness making pork, duck or a traditional Christmas goose a great to serve with it. Seasoned with apples, ginger, cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg. Try even some lavender in it!
Hearty Heart warming comfort food. Serve with good rye bread. The secret of Bigos is that it gets better as it's reheated. The more it heated the better it gets. I like cooking it most the day.This is a great make ahead meal. I posted this recipe using all pork but go ahead and add venison, veal, beef.... I also do add juniper which I love! Then throw in fresh Parsley and marjoram.

This I got from Dr Weil's site. Cabbage is a true vegetable treasure, widely underappreciated. It is low cost and highly nutritious. Along with the other cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale), cabbage provides significant amounts of fiber, vitamin C and an important class of nutrients called indoles. Research on indoles is focusing on their ability to protect against both breast and prostate cancer. An additional bonus in this savory side dish is the mushrooms. Use the more flavorful (and healthful) shitake mushrooms if you can find them.
This is a hearty traditional Polish dish consisting of boiled cabbage leaves stuffed with ground beef, chopped onions, and rice or barley, baked in a spicy tomato sauce with sliced carrots for sweetness and mushrooms for heartiness. I remember eating only the stuffing when I was young. Now I eat it all and my kids cabbage they don't want. It's worth all the work! You can cook stove top very low heat, I use a rack on the bottom of the pot then layer the rolls, to prevent burning! Off the top of my head I'd say it makes about 20 rolls (give or take). Smacznego!

A great way to use left over potatoes. Every Christmas Eve we had perogies. They do go fast so we'd fight over them. The fillings are unlimited. Cabbage, Cheese, Fruit, mushrooms, sauerkraut or check out my Recipe #146547
FYI: add a touch of herbs to one dough and paprika, curry, cinnamon to another when making a couple different fillings so you can tell which is which. Just do complement the fillings!
