I was searching for this recipe for a few months, I had made it before in culinary school and loved it sooo much. I made a few changed: I used apple cider vinegar, plus more of it, I also used brown sugar rather than the white. I did however cook the cabbage a little too long, I would have liked a more firm texture and the apples lost their texture as well. Otherwise this is a nice dish, a little different and a pleasant change from corn or green beans! Read More

This was good both hot and later cold. A little sweeter than I cared for. Next time I will increase the vinegar and decrease the sugar as I like them a little "pickle-y" Read More

This was a very delicious recipe. I presteamed my cabbage. When it was time to prepare the rest of the dish I simply sauted the onions and apples 10-15min then added everything else. it was done after about 5 min. of simmer time! I also substituted with the brown sugar and cider vinegar. Read More

This recipe came the closest to the Rotkraut we had in Leavenworth Washington. Instead of apples I used applesauce so the flavor blended more evenly through the cabbage. It brought back a lot of happy vacation memories! Read More

This was an easy quick and really tasty recipe. I substituted 3 strips of bacon in lieu of the oil and also used apple sauce instead of apples. I wish I would have made a double batch! Read More

We really enjoyed this different dish. And easy enough to make. I used another reviewers suggestion and used apple cider vinegar (instead of white) and brown sugar (instead of white). Read More

I have made this several times and it is wonderful. This time I used bacon drippings instead of the oil and it was better yet! Read More

I'd had Red Cabbage with Apples in a German restaurant and really loved it. This recipe was so close to it and really good. I did add about 1 c. of sweetened applesauce to it instead of the apples. Then I reduced the sugar to 2 T. and increased the vinegar to 4 T. Delicious! Read More

Good colorful dish. I used 2 Tbsp. each of vinegar and sugar and liked the result. The only thing I would add to the directions is to watch carefully for sticking during the 25 minutes of simmering. Read More

This was better than I've had in many German Restaurants. My husband thought he had "gone to heaven." He said it didn't get any better. Read More
