You will need for 4 people:
Thinly sliced Red Cabbage (about ½ an average sized cabbage).1 leek, thinly sliced (or 1 red onion)1 Apple, peeled or thinly sliced (granny Smith or Braeburn work well or try a Pear!)½ cup of red wine, or red wine vinegar, or mixture.2 heaped tablespoons of brown sugarFreshly grated nutmeg.
You do need a saucepan big enough to take all the shredded cabbage and with a good fitting lid.
Heat a dash of olive oil/butter in the saucepan and add all the red cabbage and sliced leek. Stir well on a moderate heat and sauté for 2/3 minutes until the cabbage is glistening and starting to wilt down.
Add the thinly sliced apple, sugar and red wine /vinegar.
Stir well. Pop the lid on a leave to cook on a very low heat for about 15 minutes.
Take lid off and continue to gently simmer for a few minutes if the cabbage is too crisp for your tastes. Finish by stirring through a touch of freshly grated nutmegThere will be a lot of liquid, don’t worry, just serve with a slotted spoon if you wish
