1 T honey subbed for the sugar. At first, I didn't care for the hot and sweet together, but I ended up liking it! Great flavor!



I will put in more black pepper next time, and I also left the diced peppers in the cabbage. I added some butter as well. It went great with the jamaican rice and Jerk chicken, and Cuban black beans.



I subbed a habenero pepper for the Scotch bonnet pepper, as I couldn't find one in my local grocery store. The texture was nice, but the flavor was kind of bland. We added Sriracha sauce for an extra kick.
