I'm giving this 3 stars because I think the basic ingredients are good, it just needs more of everything. More vinegar, I used both apple cider & red wine,and more spices I just kept adding as it cooked. I also added a few juniper berries. It needed to cook A LOT longer then 1/2 hour, 3+ hours. Will do it in the crock pot next time.

  1. Slice cabbage very thin.
  2. Heat fat in large frying pan or Dutch oven, toss in the cabbage.
  3. Add vinegar and salt, stir gently.
  4. Stick cloves in a medium size onion and bury it under the cabbage.
  5. Add water to cover and rest of spices, place a tight fitting lid on the pan and simmer very slowly 30 minutes or until cabbage is tender.
  6. Add water as needed while cooking.
