"Couldn't find my recipe! Tried yours and it was great, just like the ones I eat in Germany years ago! For those who didn't like the cloves or allspice, just a little and let it cook the first 15 minutes. Then if you need more, add it when you add the apples, a little at a time."- Kathmagee

Top-ranked recipe named "German Red Cabbage with Apples"
1. Chiffonade the red cabbage, peel and cube the apple.
2. Heat bacon in a saucepan over medium high heat. When it starts to crisp, add the red cabbage, vinegar (or wine), water, salt, pepper and cloves. Stir to combine.
3. Sprinkle the sugar over the top, but do not stir. Cover and turn down the heat to low, simmer for about 15 minutes.
4. Add apples and stir, cook for about 5 minutes more.
This actually tastes best when reheated the next day, so don't hesitate to make this one ahead of time.

Rodia 2 months agoI have used this recipe 4 times and it comes out perfect every time. It's easy to make and gets a ton of compliments every time. Goes great with meat and potato or rice dishes. Who would have thought the kids would like cabbage with dinner.

Rodia 2 years agoI made this today. It was very easy and tasty. It was the perfect compliment to a lamb roast and basil/cream mashed potatoes. I am looking forward to trying the reheated leftovers.
