Red cabbage with apple

by Ursula


600g red cabbage
4 cloves
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 apples
1 tablespoon honey or brown sugar


Remove the outer leaves of the red cabbage. Cut cabbage in quarters and remove the hard core. Cut the cabbage in small strips and wash. Put the cabbage and salt in a pot. Add cloves in the bay leaves and put in the pot as well. Add some water and bring to the boil. Simmer the red cabbage approx. 20 min. Cut the apples in little cubes. Add the apple after approx. 15 min. When the cabbage is cooked remove the bay leaves and the cloves. Add some salt, pepper and honey/brown sugar to taste. Serve hot.

One of the great joys each week is opening up my Free Co. box and discovering what they have sent me. I can then plan my meals around the veg and challenge myself with new recipes and ideas. I'm also supporting a truly sustainable business.
