I spotted a red cabbage at the local farmers market (Japanese webpage only) and decided to make something for my friend’s boxing day party. After looking online I came across this recipe posted by Ardis Stauffer on allrecipes.com. It was absolutely fabulous! I haven’t had this for a long time. There are a lot of people of Germanic descent where I grew up and sweet and sour is a familiar flavor. For the full recipe, follow this link.
Changes I made:
- used one small Japan-sized red cabbage – the size of two fists
- used have wine vinegar and half white vinegar
- used only one apple as my cabbage was small
- skipped the allspice because I didn’t have it
I didn’t have a cheese cloth so I used one of those fillable teabags they sell here in Japan.
