Recipe type: Sides & Sauces
Serves: 6
  • ½ red cabbage (approximately 1 kilo)
  • 1 large granny smith apple
  • 3 Tablespoons duck fat
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1 - 2 bayleaves
  • salt
  1. First, prepare your cabbage and apple. Remove the outer leaves of your red cabbage and slice finely. I use the shredding attachment on my food processor. Peel, core and dice your Granny Smith.
  2. Peel and finely dice your onion. Melt the duck fat into a dutch oven (I used my le Creuset) over a medium heat. Sweat the onions for about 10 minutes, until translucent.
  3. Add your cabbage and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. While your cabbage is cooking down, peel and mince your garlic. Add your garlic, diced apple, apple cider vinegar, ground cloves, coconut sugar, raisins and bay leaves to the cabbage mix. Season generously and bring to the boil, before turning down to a simmer. Add the lid and walk away.
  5. Leave the cabbage to cook slowly on a low heat for two hours, stirring occasionally.
  6. Check for seasoning before serving.
