    I was given a jar of this Red Cabage recipe and I was saving it until now, Christmas - It was okay but there was something missing - I just can't put my finger on it. I thought perhaps a bit of brown sugar or a bit more hot spice - I am just not sure. I loved trying it and really appreciate getting it and feel very bad not rating it higher but I have to be honest.
