Side dishes

Preparation

Try shredding red cabbage finely and braising it for two to three hours with oil, spices, red wine vinegar, apple, stock and brown sugar for a sticky, caramelised side dish to game dishes, roast pork and duck. Alternatively, if you want to boost your vitamin intake, eat raw red cabbage in salads or coleslaw - it's packed with vitamin C.
