Pepper Cabbage aka Amish Slaw-Annette's

Annette W.


I love sauerkraut cooked in brown sugar. I love it sweet with just a hint of sour. This recipe is the same. Cabbage and peppers with vinegar and sugar give it that sweet and sour flavor. The cabbage gives it a slight crunch though unlike kraut. This is known as 'Amish Slaw or Pickled cabbage' as well.

It goes great with anything BBQ! I love it on a pulled pork sammie.

Recipe is my own.
