I've had this recipe marked to test out for a while, so when hubby said he wanted sausages for dinner, I thought I would finally get around to cooking this up. Unsurprisingly, this tasted a lot like cabbage...a bit too much for me. I think I was hoping it would have a bit more going on, but given the short list of ingredients, I shouldn't be surprised with how it turned out. It was nice, but I think I'm more of a fresh cabbage person than a boiled cabbage person now that I've tested this out.
Red Cabbage with Apple
adapted from Stephanie Alexander's The Cook's Companion, pg 215
1/4 cup water
1 red cabbage, sliced, washed and drained
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
100g butter, cubed
Put water, cabbage, sugar and salt into a heavy based pan. Add apple, cover and cook on lowest heat for 1 hour.
Take off the lid, and stir the apple through the cabbage. Add the vinegar and butter. Cook, covered for another 15 minutes and stir once more. The butter should give the cabbage a nice shine.
