I never made Rotkohl before, but will be making it again using this wonderful recipe! It was very tasty and easy to make. Kree says it "freakin' rocks!" Thanks for another great recipe, Mysterygirl!

I added quite a bit of salt, some extra vinegar and some brown sugar. Right off the stove, it had a bit of a vinegar taste to it, but I put it in the over at 275 for a few hours and the taste mellowed out.
