Method

  1. Cook the bacon in a frying pan until crispy. You shouldn’t need any oil as the fat will run from the bacon.
  2. Heat the vinegar in a large saucepan until just simmering. Tip in the sugar and stir to dissolve, then add the red cabbage. Cook for a further 3 – 5 minutes, tossing the cabbage through the vinegar.
  3. Spoon the cabbage into bowl, stir through the bacon, sultanas and season with black pepper and a little salt. Allow to cool.
  4. Toss in the blue cheese to serve.

I found this super tasty and everyone who tried loved it!
I cooked the cabbage in half balsamic vinegar, half water, and for much longer (probably at least 8 mins) until it was cooked but still crunchy.

Despite the bad reviews I decided to try this to go with a rich roast pork dinner... it was just right. The key is to toss the red cabbage in the simmering vinegar for 3 mins ONLY and then drain off the vinegar thoroughly. I also added a diced braeburn apple and just a little mayonnaise tossed in before serving, and I used cubed feta cheese instead of blue cheese.

Nothing special... I didn't mind the vinegar but generally it didn't hang together well.

This was vile, even after I cooked it for longer to try and boil some of the vinegar off. I ended up throwing it away and I NEVER through food away.
