    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour 25 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 40 minutes

    Serves: 6-8


    1 large onion, sliced
    25g unsalted butter
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 red cabbage, shredded
    2 cooking apples, peeled and roughly chopped
    1 tsp ground mixed spice
    2 tbsp light brown soft sugar
    25ml red wine vinegar
    500ml fresh chicken stock

    1. In a large, flameproof casserole dish, soften the onion in the butter for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in all the remaining ingredients apart from the redcurrant jelly and season. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

    2. Remove the lid, turn the heat up a little and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the liquid has reduced. Just before serving, stir through the redcurrant jelly and season again, if needed.
