Braised red cabbage

Braised red cabbage

100g light muscovado sugar

½ tsp. ground cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground cloves

Good pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

900g red cabbage, trimmed, stalks removed and cut into 1cm slices

450g onions, finely chopped

450g cooking apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped

4 tbsp. red wine vinegar

Juice of 1 orange

25g butter

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4

Place the sugar in a bowl with the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and stir to combine. Arrange a layer of the cabbage in the bottom of a large casserole dish and season to taste.

Scatter a layer of the onions over the seasoned cabbage, followed by a layer of the apples and sprinkle some of the flavoured sugar on top. Continue layering in this way until all the ingredients have been used up, finishing with a layer of the seasoned cabbage. Pour the red wine vinegar and orange juice into the casserole and dot the butter on top.
