Talk about beautiful and seasonal goodness! I can't remember a Thanksgiving in my life when our family hasn't prepared my grandmother Nanny's purple cabbage. It must be the German heritage in me that absolutely loves the flavor of this wonderful side dish of the Autumn season. It's an heirloom recipe in our family -- simple to make -- and I hope you enjoy it as much as our family has for generations.
