Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Sweet and Sour Cabbage is a beautiful dish!

I think it is one of my favorite German recipes. You can have this dish as a side to ham, pork chops, pork loin or the traditional German meats.

The rich color makes it look so appealing!  Cabbage and apples are also extremely nutritious.  Hey…..best of both worlds!
