Red Cabbage Rødkål

I’ve always loved color! Everyone knows it. The brighter the better! So can you guess what caught my eye with this delicious Red Cabbage Rødkål dish? Yep! You know it! Purple!Rødkål…red cabbage in Danish, is nice and bright, and when cooked, it becomes a gorgeous deep eggplant-ish color!

Yes, Idaho Potatoes in the form of a chip! I succumbed to my weakness and darted as quickly as I could to grab a handful. The Idaho Potato representative greeted me with a smile and as I munched away, she proceeded to tell me about…
