  1. I loved this hubs not as much. But I love sauerkraut and cabbage soups etc. so this was right up my alley. Couldn't be easier. And almost turns out like a warm sauerkraut.

  2. This went well with us today. I used lemon juice instead of vinegar and left out the apples by choice.
  3. I used this recipe the first time I fried cabbage and it's very simple and easy. And best of all the whole family liked it!
  4. Very nice. Based on previous reviews I used only 2 granny smith apples and threw in a chopped onion as well as used about 1/2 the butter. Really enjoyed it thanks!
  5. Very good tasting...but the apples make the difference! I used a tart apple...Granny Smith...and it really offset the more milder taste of the cabbage. A big hit!
  6. I went the sausage/egg noodle main dish route using "banger" style English sausage which seems to match the cabbage and apples well. It all could use a bit more flavor though.

  7. I love cabbage more than any vegetable and this is the best recipe ever. (Without the apples of course) Not an apple fan.

  9. This was easy. There was nothing wrong with this I just didn't like the taste too much apple for me.
