This recipe was the most delicious red cabbage I have ever had. I used semi-sweet red wine and apple cider vinegar because that's what I had and it turned out great. The cabbage had the perfect amount of sweetness and was perfectly tender after 40 minutes. I added more liquid than called for and just strained the excess before serving. Thanks for this great recipe!
