  1. Put the cabbage in a wide shallow pan with the butter, apple, bay leaf and cloves. Cook, stirring, until the cabbage starts to wilt. Add the vinegar (stand back and don’t breathe in until the steam subsides), then continue to stir and cook until the vinegar has almost all disappeared. Add the sugar and stir until it has completely dissolved – be careful not to let it burn. Sprinkle with walnuts to serve. This will freeze well but let it thaw completely before gently reheating in a pan or microwave.

Made this for a dinner party and served with coq-au-vin. Guests loved it but I di change things a bit, I used a little ground clove as i found i had run out of whole ones also added a little extra sugar(to taste) and finally cooked it in the oven in a casserole dish. I found this way it did not need as much attention as having to stand and stir. Ofcourse it takes longer but was very successful.

Had this last night with Chilli & Coriander sausages and mash and it was lovely (left out the walnuts). Have frozen the rest for Christmas Dinner. I would suggest that you match large red cabbage to large apple or small to small you could end up with an unbalanced dish.
