SO HOW'D IT GO?

I enjoyed this and it was a big hit at a party my family and I had for Oktoberfest.  This is a great side, Autumn-y dish.  I added some more cinnamon and cider vinegar the second time I made it and I also added raisins.

This was good.  However, I changed it a lot like the other users....

I used balsamic vinegar, added raisins and pine nuts and some agave nectar.  I grew up eating fried sweet cabbage, so I like it with a little added sweetener.

This was a promising idea, but lacked taste. So I made it again, and this time I used quite a bitmore vinegar and an extra apple, plus a couple of dessertspoonfuls of  raisins, a dessertspoonful of honey and a generous dash of cinammon. Also some seasoning. Wow! What a transformation! So good that now we are going to serve this with Christmas dinner!

samiwolf - i prepared this recipe using your suggestions.  But instead of honey, I used agave nectar and I omitted the raisins.  It was so delicious!  My husband couldn't stop raving.  I served it with Tofurky Kielbasa sausage, baked sweet potato and some steamed spinach.  One of the best vegan meals I have made to date!  Thanks to spookychicken for posting this and to samiwolf for your modifications!
