"Delicious! My mother in law taught me how to make this. She called it "Rodkol", (roadcoal) she added caraway seeds, but I made mine using your recipe. Excellent! Thanks for sharing."

"Growing up in a German family, my grandmother made this often. However, as a child, I refused to eat it because I thought it looked "yucky and weird", so this was my first time making this, per my husband's request. And after one bite, only one word came out of my mouth - "Wow." I'm finding out now what I was missing as a child. This is absolutely delicious. I did as many others did, I used cider vinegar because it was all I had. Besides the vinegar, I didn't change a thing. And now that I've finally had German red cabbage, it definitely won't be the last time I make it."

"Made this recently for company and it was really good. I made it using the food processor for cabbage, onion and apples. I did substitute apple cider vinegar as that was what I had. Served it warm as a side dish of baby back ribs along with a green salad Yummy"
