German Red Cabbage Recipe

German Red Cabbage Recipe

Sunday afternoons were frequently a time for family gatherings. While the uncles played cards, the aunts prepared wonderful German treats such as this red cabbage. Oftentimes there wasn't enough room for everyone at the dining table, so the grown-ups and babies ate first. My cousins and I would hang around waiting for our turn, hoping there'd be plenty of food left.
