Personal Notes:
Grandma Scherbarth made this every Thanksgiving. I was the only one who asked her for the recipe. Then one Thanksgiving my Mother and Aunts tried to make it and couldn't figure out the mystery ingredient. They added all different ingredients. It was the worse tasting red cabbage we ever ate. Then Grandpa Scherbarth came to our house and I had made the red cabbage. He said "do you know how to make Grandma's red cabbage?" When he found out it tasted like Grandma's he was so happy. The mystery ingredient was the cinnamon. Now I'm the one who makes it for Thanksgiving every year.
