"At least in Germany, it’s hard to imagine a winter without “Rotkohl”, a traditional, sweet and savory braised red cabbage. You can find pre-prepared red cabbage in supermarkets everywhere, but it tastes extra delicious when you make it at home. That way, you can vary the spices depending on what you like best, and it’s very easy to do. My favorite version features wintery spices like allspice, juniper berries, and cinnamon, while apples add some sweetness. Give it a try and let me know what you think!"
