Braised red cabbage

Braised red cabbage

30g butter, plus extra to finish
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 cinnamon stick
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 red cabbage, cored and shredded
1 tart eating apple, such as Granny Smith, finely chopped
3 tbsp brown sugar
50ml balsamic vinegar
100ml red wine
3 tbsp cranberry sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, then stir in the spices and cook for one minute.
  2. Tip in the cabbage and cook for 5-6 minutes until shiny. Add the apple, sugar, vinegar and wine, then reduce the heat to low. Stir well, cover and cook for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t stick.
  3. Stir in the cranberry sauce, season well and cook for another 25 minutes. Stir through a knob of butter just before serving.
