Red cabbage and apple

Simply take:

  • 1 red cabbage sliced thinlyOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  • a couple of red onions (well any will do but red is nice), sliced
  • two apples (optional), peeled, cored and sliced.
  • a sprinkle of brown sugar
  • 200 ml dry red wine (fine if it’s a few days after opening)
  • a little butter or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (powdered is ok or grate some fresh)

Add all the ingredients to a large pan and put on a reasonable heat until bubbling; then simple turn down, shove on a lid and simmer for about an hour until everything is cooked and the caramels come out.  Keep a bit of an eye on it, and if it is drying out add a splash more wine.  When done, check the seasoning – it often needs a bit of salt.

This dish is great hot or cold.
