"You can braise this on the stove top as well in the crock pot! This is a long cooking recipe to make a very tender texture. The braised red cabbage of Alsace, counterbalances the fattiness making pork, duck or a traditional Christmas goose a great to serve with it. Seasoned with apples, ginger, cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg. Try even some lavender in it!"

"It was good. Next time would increase the amount of spices and add a bay leaf. Needed some sugar. Will definitely make it again. thanks"
"This was good. Different. I think my problem was that the seasonings (ginger,cinnamon, nutmeg...)are so different from the way I've been making my red cabbage for years. Mine was done before four hours on Low in my slow cooker."
"had to cook this for 6 hours, the last hour on high. Next time I'll add some honey or brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit more, or even another apple. Delicious!"
"I made this yesterday to go with a duck that I was roasting. I started this cabbage dish in the crock at about 2pm. It was very easy to assemble, and quick. I added a little more honey and added a little bit more of the spices. I like a lot of flavor. This cooked very well on high for four hours and was ready to eat. It made the whole house smell so good!! I thought this was very tasty, with a sweet and sour flavor twist to it. The color was beautiful, also having eye appeal. I was the only one in the house that liked it, so I packaged up a bunch of it and sent it up the street to some senior friends. They said it smelled wonderful and was very good to eat!!! I believe 'mouthwatering' was used once or twice. All in all, a very good, beautiful dish!! I plan on making it again."
"Really good really EZ ...I made in in the crock pot, but did not bother with the sauteing the onions part....Just threw everything in and opened it 5 hours later....This is the perfect side dish for anyone who likes red cabbage...Cabbage still had a nice crunch to it...I cant seem to find any jarred red cabbage that my kids like (and they like red cabbage)...this fits the bill perfectly...Will be a regular dish at my house to go along with spetzel and schnitzel...Thanks for posting"
"Fabulous - much like my own recipe for crockpot red cabbage and very fragrant - smells like Christmas!! We both liked the addition of the honey and the balsamic vinegar - just a nice amount too! Edited to add - the first review did not post - I am making this again this weekend and will post photos! Thanks Rita! FT:-)"
"Wow!! When I opened the door at the end of the day - the aroma was marvelous....and so was the taste! Mine took more than 5 hours to cook (DD checked it at 5 and we cooked it for 7) but I have an old crock pot. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I had to substitute the American version of apple cider, so I debated between apple juice mixed with some cider vinegar and just using our alcoholic version of apple cider. I eventually went with a nice sweet organic alcoholic version. It was really lovely! I did it in the crock pot, and it was perfect after cooking for five hours. We really enjoyed it. Thanks!"
"Very good...went great with our Scandanavian meal!!"
"I used White onion and added a few whole cloves also dod it stovetop. It smells wonderful."
"Very good . . . I love crockpot and always looking for something new and different. Thanks for sharing."
"This is an excellent recipe which tastes very much like the way my mother used to make red cabbage. I found with my particular slow cooker, though, that I had to cook it on high in order for it to be ready on time for dinner. Otherwise, I made it as directed."
"Yummy. This was such a nice variation on the typical red cabbage recipe. Like Barb and Caroline, I made mine on the stove and the dish was ready to eat in just 45 minutes. My I added an extra tablespoon of Splenda at the end because i love sweet cabbage. The balsamic makes a nice departure from cider vinegar and works well with the spices included. I served mine with Mititei (Small Ground Beef Sausages) Recipe #137695 and some boiled potatoes for a comforting quick meal. Thanks Rita!"
"I haven't got a crockpot but this is just the sort of recipe to tempt me to rush out and buy one! Although we have red cabbage with apple and onion regularly, this recipe gave us a new take on an old favourite. I loved using honey instead of sugar, and the spices are balanced just right. "
"This Recipe is delicious, outstanding, so good & easy to make. I cooked it on top of the stove,Cut the recipe in half, used a whole small granny Smith apple. The spices are just right. Served the cabbage with chicken,artichoke sausages Yummy. Thank you Rita for sharing the recipe."
