My dear 16 year old son tweaked the cabbage/sausage recipe and simply cut up potatoes and put them directly in the cabbage mix. The longer it cooks with the vinegar and sugar, the yummier it is. I can not believe that I actually volunteer to eat the leftovers of something made out of cabbage for my lunch! I used to HATE cabbage. I suppose that is what nine kids and knowing money doesn't grow on trees will do to a person. Eat what you have.
