I made this for a danish friend of mine. He didn't rave quite as much as my husband lol! But it was fabulous. My only complaint was that it made a pretty decent mess in the pan. Maybe I was too hot? Regardless, will make again and next time pay better attention to the temperature. My 3 year old ate this. Imagine that! Thanks DotM.

Dot, this recipe just "ROCKS!" Thanks so much for posting it. Our little, in the middle of nowhere town, didn't have current jelly so I improvised with Red Cherry Jelly. Awesome!

We love red cabbage, and have made a couple of similar ones off 'zaar before. The red currant jelly is always a great addition.
