Spiced Red Cabbage With Taylors Port

Red cabbage makes a colourful and tasty alternative to the ‘love-or-hate’ brussel sprout and this Christmas recipe adds a spicy new dimension.


Melt the butter in a saucepan and gently fry the onions, taking care not to brown them as this will make them bitter. Once the onions are soft and translucent and the cinnamon stick and orange juice and bring to a simmer. Add the red cabbage, Port and Balsamic vinegar, cover and simmer slowly for about 45 minutes or until the red cabbage is soft. Season to taste and serve.
