This is a Delicious Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage, I cut the Recipe in half, worked great,added a little lemon zest, other than that i followed the recipe. Great flavor. Will be making it again as we like it much better than the canned Sweet and sour red cabbage.I am wondering just how well it would can or freeze. Great recipe Mini.

Delicious! I made a half recipe, substituting white wine for red, just because we didn't have any red. Used balsamic vinegar, which worked will in the sweet/sour. Very good.
