We camp out often in summer and do a lot of cooking over charcoal. These veggies go great with any grilled meat. Sometimes I also thread brown-and-serve rolls on skewers, brush with melted butter and cook them over the coals for 10-15 minutes. They get all crusty on the outside, yet stay soft in the center. It rounds out a super meal.

I first made this original recipe about 40 years ago, and it hasn't failed me yet. The thing I like about the dish is that it isn't plain. The flavorings dress up an "ordinary" vegetable, and put some real zip in any meal! This is an easy, quick dish to make, and it adds a splash of color to your table.

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.

I frequently prepare this side dish as a change from mashed potatoes. Our son is a real meat-and-potatoes man, and he things they're great.—Skip Dolliver, South Hamilton, Massachusetts
