Here's another recipe for red cabbage, aka Rotkohl, that uses apples to enhance the flavor. Easy to make, yet tastes best reheated, so make it ahead of time if you can. Red cabbage recipes are really a staple for German cooking. They go particularly well with hearty meats such as beef, pork, game, turkey -- well, just about everything!
This sweet 'n sour red cabbage is the usual way we Germans love to make this side dish. In fact, it's the only way I grew up with it!
You'll need a nice big knife to cut through the cabbage as well as some disposable gloves.
Why the gloves?
If you don't use gloves, your hands will have a lovely pink/purple color from cutting the red cabbage!
