This red cabbage recipe is prepared in a typical german style.The cabbage is cooked in an apple, onion and red wine sauce with the addition of some fragrant spices.
Cabbage has been know to Europeans since the Romans ruled most of the known world more than 2000 years ago. There are many different kinds of cabbage available for the people that live in middle European countries and they have been exported to many countries all over the world. Red cabbage has a few attributes that let it stick out. One of them is its bright blue or red color which is even intensified during the cooking process. Thats while it is as well called Blau (blue) Kraut in some areas of Germany. Most cabbages that are available are usually green, or greenish white in color and are usually prepared in a savory style while the Red one on most occasions I know is dished up in a sweetish sauce. This recipe is following this tradition and the cooked cabbage that it produces is a perfect accompaniment to many hearty meat dishes.
