Red Cabbage With Apples and Spices - Crock Pot

"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!"

    I have made this at least twice now, and it is always a hit! It works great as as side dish for a German meal of bratwurst, but we also just enjoyed it with Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes for Christmas Eve dinner. I make the recipe exactly according to the instructions. It's a keeper!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!
