Ingredient of the Month 26: Red Cabbage
|Distinctively-coloured red cabbage looks so attractive when cut!|
Culinary uses: Most people first encounter red cabbage pickled in jars, but there are many other ways to eat it. Red cabbage can be eaten raw, shredded into salads and 'slaws, or even made into sauerkraut. It has a fresh, almost peppery flavour. It goes well with apple, too. Apart from using it in stews and soups as you would many other types of vegetable, you can also steam/ sweat it with caraway, anise, cumin or fennel seeds and black pepper to make a delicately aromatic side dish. It's also delicious braised with apple.
