    Savoy cabbage with juniper

    by Diana Henry

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes to 6 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes to 11 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 6


    800g Savoy cabbage
    8 juniper berries
    50g butter 


    1. Remove the outer leaves from the cabbage (those that are wilted or discoloured) and discard. Quarter the cabbage lengthways and remove the hard central core from each piece. Slice the leaves about 2cm thick and wash.

    2. Crush the juniper berries in a pestle and mortar. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and add the cabbage, juniper and 4 tbsp water. Season, cover the pan and turn the heat down low. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, shaking the pan vigorously every so often.

    3. Take off the lid, stir and turn up the heat so that any excess water boils off and the butter coats the cabbage. Make sure to grind plenty of pepper over the cabbage before serving.
