Gerhild's red cabbage recipe is so super simple. It's quick, freezes well, and doesn't stain your hands red! Why? Shhhh (don't tell anyone!) It uses jarred or canned red cabbage. With the addition of extra ingredients, the resulting red cabbage tastes just like home-made. But, if you're looking for a red cabbage recipe that starts from scratch, check it out below!

Oma's Traditional Homemade Red Cabbage
If you're looking for a recipe for red cabbage that starts from scratch, then check out my own red cabbage. Yes, this is what my son asks for when he comes for a visit. He'll ask for red cabbage ... and not the jarred one. He can really taste the difference.
Personally, I like both. But, as a Mutti and Oma, I'll make the 'from-scratch' kind when family comes!
Gerhild's comments ...
By using jarred or canned red cabbage, you can forget about the red-stained hands you get by grating the red cabbage. As well, the cooking time is reduced.
Gerhild Naggert says that she's often asked for her recipe, so she's happy to share
it. Since it freezes well, she always has at least 2 to 3 packages in the freezer for emergencies. The microwave is great for reheating it. Above, you'll find the translated version, complete with the weight/volume conversions for the ingredients.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
