This is a wonderful side dish. I had actually had it several years ago in a restaurant and had experimented trying to make it. I had come close but the current jelly really sets it off. I did cut down a little on the apples. This will become a family staple. Thanks!!

This red cabbage really tastes great! It has a little different flavor from the usual red cabbage dishes. The spices in it were subtle, such as the clove, and set it apart from the usual German fare and gave it a Northern European taste. The wine was not strong either, it mellowed out and was not noticable at all except that it gave a nice complexity. It was easy to make, especially with an apple peeler/corer/slicer. Those make quick work of apples! This is definitely a dish to make again! Thanks, Miss Annie, for a wonderful dish!
