      Loved this red cabbage dish. It is so festive and just the right balance between sweet and sour. We will definitely have this again -- next time with some Brats!!! Thanks for the post. Made for the Diabetic Forum - Octoberfest Tag, October, 2011.

      I made this for supper tonight and my husband loved it. Reminded him of a dish his mother made. Has a nice balance of sweet and sour. I also served this with grilled brats and will definitely be making this again!

      I've made this several times. It's great. Sometimes I add the flour sometimes I don't. It works well either way. Wonderful side for grilled brauts or just about anything except spaghetti.
