UPDATE: GAVE MY PARENTS LEFTOVERS TO SERVE WITH THE BRATS THEY WERE GRILLING FOR DINNER AND THEY LOOOVED THIS! Super yum! I REALLY enjoyed this. My hubs didn't like this as much as I did, but he is not a fan of sweet sides or cabbage. :( He DID agree that this is as good if not better than our local German restaurant's cabbage tho.... Not only is this SUPER easy to prepare, it's convenient too! I was able to prep during my lunch hour (I now work out of my house) and then start cooking toward the end of the day so that this was done right as my hubs walked in the door. Other than doubling the cornstarch / water slurry (as is, my cabbage was too soupy for my liking), I changed NOTHING. To make good use of one of my kitchen gadgets, I added all of my spices to a tea ball. Oh, and I used 3 smallish Granny Smith apples (my favorite variety) because my grocer didn't have large ones. NOTE: To core a head of cabbage, simply cut the stem off so that you have a flat surface to lie the cabbage upright, then slice in half thru the stem and then slice each half in half. You'll end up with 4 wedges with a core at the end of each (i.e. quarters). Just cut out the core (on the diagonal) and viola! - you've successfully cored your cabbage! Served with authentic German frankfurters (not the Ballpark stuff!), spatzle, pretzel rolls and Woodchuck Fall cider, this was an AWESOME meal! I'm soooo glad I have leftovers. :) Thanks Ardis!!!
