Red Cabbage a traditional Dutch meal

This is the cabbage, red to purple colored leaves
These days you find in most large super-markets like SM, Robinsons and Pure Gold and the like "Red Cabbage".

I am not sure if Filipino buy this cabbage or only foreigners, anyway I have never seen anyone buying this kind of cabbage.

Being a foreigner with a Dutch background, I am one of the few who, now and then, will buy a red cabbage or in Dutch "Rode Kool".

The following description is from Wikipedia:
The red cabbage is a kind of cabbage, also known as purple cabbage, red kraut, or blue kraut after preparation. Its leaves are colored dark red/purple. Wikipedia

This vegetable is a classic tradition in the Netherlands and Germany, however these days most Dutch people don't prepare red cabbage anymore. If they like to eat it, they will buy it in a jar, then it's cooked already and just put it in the micro-wave, add some potato's and meat or sausage.

Yesterday I made it again. Here is the recipe that I used.
