I wasn't that impressed by this dish. The flavour was a bit too sweet but with bouts of sour from the cider for my taste. Also, I felt the apple chunks were much too big to really let the flavour melt in with the cabbage. It was alright, but other red cabbage recipes I've tried have been far superior eg Good food's cabbage with prunes, or Delia's sweet and sour braised cabbage.

Missed out the bay leaves and cider vinegar and only used 3 star anise but it still tasted great and my family really enjoyed it. I only spent about 30 mins cooking it down but it really does need the full 40/45 mins in order to absorb all of the liquid. Well worth making and will definitely do again.

I cant ever stick to a recipe so fried some onion and mushrooms first with the spices and added a bit of garlic, used sherry vinegar instead of cider vinegar, a piece of cinnamon instead of ground, and added a dollop of English mustard. delicious!
