One of the BEST recipes I've tried from this website. Didn't have the Calvados so I used 2 cups of organic apple juice and boiled it down to a cup. Didn't have time to fool with Emeril's so I used Tony Cachere's.
Wonderful! Didn't have Calvados so used regular Brandy and it was still excellent so I can't wait to try the real thing. Used 1/2 bag of cabbage slaw, one large onion and 1 apple since that is all I had. I too use Essence regularly, which gives the kick in flavor you need in this recipe. Hubby always rates new recipes if they are company worthy. This was a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I like to try different recipes/ingredients and this one worked nicely. I didn't have calvados so I substituted with brandy & 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar. I cut the cabbage by 4 oz and still found it to be too much. Next time I'll cut back more & alittle on the stock/brandy also. Essence spice is a regular in our cupboards & I enjoy using it.
