Sweet and sour red cabbage
Red Cabbage Half

Serves 6

  • 1/2 Red Cabbage shredded
  • 1 large Bramley Apple peeled and sliced
  • 1 onion sliced thin
  • 1tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 tea cup cider vinegar and water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1tsp grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons redcurrant jelly

Soften the onions in the butter and then add the cabbage. Cook a while then add the apple and all the remaining ingredients and liquid. You can now cook this slowly in the saucepan or pour into a casserole dish and cook for about 1 1/2 hours at 150 c. Check while it is cooking incase it needs a little more water to keep moist. When done sometimes I add a little more sugar or vinegar just to get the flavour I like.
