This is wonderful! I made it as part of a family "German food" night last year, it was a big hit! I did whisk together the vinegar, sugar and cinnamon into a "dressing" prior to adding to the cabbage, onions and apples--it made it a little easier to blend everything together in the pot. All the prep is definitely worth it for this dish!
