Rustic Red Cabbage

I was not sure what to expect from this recipe, but my husband said he wanted a recipe from his homeland so I obliged. This recipe was good if you like cabbage, which I do not. He loves cabbage and thought this was fantastic. It was a little too sweet for me so I would suggest adding the sugar a little at a time to make sure you do not get it too sweet for your liking.

If there was nothing else I could say about this recipe I would have to say that I love the color. It’s beautiful and it certainly stands out on your plate. Cabbage loves will love this recipe!!
