Vital Veg, organic farm, red cabbage

Sticky spiced red cabbage

1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium-size red cabbage, quartered, cored and shredded
1 finger-size piece fresh root ginger, finely chopped
2 onions, sliced
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tbsp mustard seed
100g golden caster sugar
150ml red wine vinegar

Heat oil in a large saucepan, add cabbage, ginger, onions, allspice and mustard seeds, then cook for 5 mins until just starting to wilt.

Scatter over the sugar and pour in the vinegar. Cover pan, gently cook for 10 mins, then remove lid and turn up the heat to medium.

Simmer the liquid in the cabbage for about 20 mins, stirring occasionally, then stir continuously for the last few mins until all the liquid has evaporated and becomes sticky on the bottom of the pan.

Tip cabbage into a large bowl and serve.
