Red cabbage is a perfect winter dish. It is the classic accompaniment to roast pork and game dishes and also goes well with ham at Christmas or sausages, any day of the week.
You could also add one peeled and chopped apple to the pan. And if you happen to have some fresh cranberries, they could go in too – 10 minutes before the other vegetables are cooked. For a twist, replace the allspice with one star anise.
Cooked this tonight to accompany boiled gammon. Absolutely delicious! Shall definitely be using this recipe again and again! I didn't have any red wine vinegar so substituted balsamic vinegar instead and it was lovely! - 06 Jan 2013
Made exactly as written and found it a little too sweet for our tastes, so I added more vinegar. The allspice was negligible, so I did give it an additional sprinkle of that spice, as well. I had to add some water while the cabbage was cooking because the moisture had evaporated, and it was starting to stick. Texture turned out nice, and taste was good. - 04 Apr 2015
