"Our dinner last night was terrific with the Glatzer Blaufrankisch Red. The recipe for the Braised Red Cabbage with Apples and Onions is simple but delicious. It has always been a family favorite at my house. My daughter is vegan, so if she is home I use vegan sausage for this recipe. This cabbage dish is also nice with roasted pork and even makes a nice side for Thanksgiving dinner. It can also be made ahead and reheated on the day it is to be used" Nanette Berning-Pate.
