                                      Red Cabbage Recipe  By Abigail Bloomfield


    This is a Christmas recipe and the cabbage is a sort of pickle to serve with Turkey or Goose.



    2 lb (1 kg) red cabbage

    1 lb (450 g) onions, chopped small

    1 lb (450 g) cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped small

    1 clove garlic, chopped very small

    ¼ whole nutmeg, freshly grated

    ¼ level teaspoon ground cinnamon

    ¼ level teaspoon ground cloves

    3 level tablespoons brown sugar

    3 tablespoons wine vinegar

    ½ oz (15 g) butter


    Pre-heat the oven to 150°C.


    You will need a large casserole with a tight-fitting lid



    Shred the rest of the cabbage finely,


    Next, in a fairly large casserole, arrange a layer of shredded cabbage seasoned with salt and pepper, then a layer of chopped onions and apples with a sprinkling of garlic, spices and sugar. Continue with these alternate layers until everything is in. Now pour in the wine vinegar, lastly add dots of butter on the top.

    Put a tight lid on the casserole and let it cook very slowly in the oven for 2-2½ hours, stirring everything around once or twice during the cooking.

    Red cabbage, once cooked, will keep warm without coming to any harm, and it will also re-heat very successfully. And, yes, it does freeze well
