This got a big "High-Five" from my Thanksgiving guests (I never hesitate to use them as guinnea pigs!!). My just-turned-21 yr. old nephew even asked me for the recipe and took the left-overs home with him. I usually make a sweet-and-sour German red cabbage dish, but I didn't have bacon, wasn't going to run back to the store AGAIN, etc, and then I found this recipe. I used green cabbage, and it might not be as pretty, but it sure went fast.
I too have made this dish many times, but never with the jelly-what a great addition. The sweet sour flavours are hard to beat. It was wonderful on a cold wintery night, and I'm looking forward to left-overs tomorrow to test your theory Miller. Thanks for another great recipe.
I am rating this the same day that it is posted because I have made this dish many times and it is excellent the red current jelly gives it a nice tang. The Danes make this recipe a lot but it does lean towards being Swedish. I also use green cabbage and it is equally as good. Of course the red cabbage gives a nice variation of color with other veggies on the dinner plate. Thanks Miller
This was my first time cooking red cabbage and it was really good. We ate it with perogi's, wurst and German rye bread from the German deli. It made a great addition to the meal. Very tasty.
