This is in my oven right now and wow the aroma is absolutely crazy good! I had to sub 2 things though and crossing my fingers it will be just as or maybe better ! I ended up with a pear instead of an apple & white wine for the apple cider. Thank you for this recipe! It's down to being creative in the kitchen right now because we are on a tight budget and this fit right in with what I had on hand!
We had this with our dinner the other night & it was great an interesting way to serve cabbage. It did take a lot of preparation though so not something that I would probably make regularly but nice occasionally.
This was thoroughly enjoyed by my family. The flavours came together well for a very satisfying meal.
