      A pleasant cooked cabbage. I would increase the vinegar and the garlic, and crack the fennel to get a little more impact from that spice.

      We really enjoyed this. I would never have thought to use fennel seed with cabbage but it works nicely and the amount of vinegar was just right. I was actually a bit worried that my husband might not like this. He normally turns his nose up at cabbage when I sauté it in butter but these flavours pleased him and he cleaned his plate! The one thing I would say is that it doesn't look the prettiest when it's done, but the taste more than makes up for that.

      Latchy, Followed the recipe to the letter, very good. Has a nice blending of flavors. Especially liked the fennel seed. DH said he wished it had a more vinegar taste. Probably will increase the vinegar a little next time. Plan to make again.
