Dreamer in Ontario's Note:
This recipe is almost like cabbage rolls without the work. It serves 8 to 10 so is great for entertaining and, even better, can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen. In fact, the flavour improves when reheated! The recipe comes from a 1983 Canadian Living publication called Everyday Cookbook Special. NOTE: After receiving a few reviews I've reduce the sugar and vinegar by half. I completely agree that this was too sugary.
