Amazing cabbage 

Not 2 words you normally hear together, but in this case, it’s true.

Just calling it cabbage is a bit of a lie though…

It’s a Jamie Oliver recipe that I love to make in the winter, although it also makes a delicious cold accompaniment in the summer.

1 x red cabbage, centre removed and chopped into chunks
1 x red onion, sliced
2 x apples, peeled, cored and chunked
150ml balsamic vinegar
1 x packet good quality streaky bacon, fixed
1 x tbsp fennel seeds

1. Pour some olive oil into a saucepan, get it hot and add the bacon and fennel seeds.

2. Cook until golden then add the onion and continue to cook, with the lid on, for a few more minutes until golden and sticky.

3. Add the apple, followed by the cabbage chunks, salt and pepper and the vinegar, and stir everything together well.

4. Put the lid back on and continue to cook on a low heat for an hour, checking and stirring every so often.

5. Scoop it into a serving dish, put the butter on top and sprinkle over the parsley.
