This had a wonderful combination of flavors. I added a bit of chopped fresh ginger. Next time I might add a bit more apple. It was extremely easy to prepare. Will definitely make it again.

very close to the red cabbage dish I grew up on.

I made this for dinner tonight. It had a nice & interesting flavor...I especially like the taste of the cloves. I used ground cloves instead of 2 whole cloves. I prefer a more vinegar-y taste so I added about 1/4 cup of white vinegar and some balsamic vinegar for extra flavor. Otherwise, this was a very good recipe, especially if you don't want to "mask" the flavor of the cabbage with vinegar.
