Go Red with the cabbage this Christmas.....

Red Cabbage is a unsung hero of mine, cooked properly it will lend itself to almost anything. It cooks quickly and looks fantastic when put into a bowl and served to a hungry hoard of people. I use a bit of ginger and white pepper to give it a little bit of fire.......

1/2 of finely shredded red cabbage
4 cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped up roughly
1 thumb of ginger, peeled and grated finely
1/2 tea cup of golden sultanas
6 tblsp of balsamic vinegar
juice of two oranges
brown sugar
salt and ground white pepper

All you got to do is throw the shredded cabbage into a stainless steel pot with the apples, vinegar, ginger, orange juice, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Now put a lid on it and wait for the apples to explode. Cook over a low heat for a further 15 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly. This vegetable will go with Goose, Duck, Pork, Venison or any other fatty meat.

Q. tip; don't over cook the red cabbage you will take the good out of it
