  • 500 g red cabbage, sliced finely Salt and pepper 2 small red onions (or 1 large one), diced finely 1 large Bramley apple, diced finely 1 clove garlic, diced finely or crushed ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 4 cloves, ground 2 tablespoons brown sugar 3 tablespooons red or white wine vinegar 10g butter Method Prepare all your ingredients as directed above. Mix together the ground spices and brown sugar in a bowl. Preheat your oven to 150C Arrange about a quarter of the cabbage at the bottom of a large casserole dish Sprinkle over about a third of the onions, a third of the apple, a third of the garlic and a third of the sugar and spice mix. Add a few twists of salt and pepper. Add another layer of cabbage, followed by another layer of onions, apple, garlic, spices, salt and pepper. Repeat a third time and then top with the remaining red cabbage. Pour over 3 teaspoons of red or white wine vinegar (this will help preserve the colour of the cabbage, so don’t miss this step out!) and dot with approximately 10g of butter. Put a tight lid on the casserole dish (use foil if you don’t have a lid) and cook in your pre-heated oven for 2 ½ hours, stirring spice during cooking time. Serve immediately or leave to cool then store in an airtight container in the fridge for a day or two. To reheat, simply place in a saucepan with approximately 100ml water and heat gently with a lid on until the cabbage is hot (about 5 minutes). 3.5.3208
