Spiced Braised Red Cabbage

20160802_184023

Having some Red Cabbage left over, I decided to try my hand at a spiced red cabbage as I’m having red meat tomorrow and think this will be the perfect side dish.

Makes a full 400g jar

1/2 large Red Cabbage – very finely sliced

1 bramley apple – very finely sliced

1 garlic glove – sliced finely

3 tbsp brown sugar

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

For the spice bag:-

5 cardamon pods

1 cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp cinnamon)

1 star anise (or you could use chinese 5 spice)

1 muslin bag (I didn’t have this, so I used a tea bag!)

 

  1. First of all preheat your oven to 130 deg.
  2. Place all the spice ingredients into the muslin and gather to tie together and make a bag. If you don’t have this you can use a Tea Bag, I emptied the tea out carefully by cutting the top off the T Bag, added in all the spices and tied with some thread. If using the T Bag you will need to cut up cinnamon stick or use powder. 20160802_135138
  3. Place the spice bag in a casserole dish. Then layer the cabbage, garlic, apple and brown sugar. 20160802_135751
  4. Then pour in the red wine vinegar. Place lid on dish and put in oven and cook for 3 hours.
  5. You might need to stir half way through.                                                                          20160802_140600  20160802_140608
