"My husband and I both loved this with the easy Sauerbraten and Crumb-Coated Spaetzle. It was not really sweet at all, but the flavors all went together nicely."

"Did not really care for this dish. Guess I was expecting a sweeter taste and I doubled the sugar, too. Bacon saved the dish for me. I only used 1/2 head of cabbage because I harvested a head right from my garden and it was rather large. Will go back to my other red cabbage recipe."
