he good thing about this dish is that it tastes even better made in advance, so you can save time by making it the night before. This goes well with the Boxing Day cold cuts, so make double the quantity and hope that there are some leftovers!
1. Finely slice the cabbage, discarding the core and any tough pieces. Melt the butter in a pan with a tight-fitting lid over a medium heat. Cook the onion uncovered for 5 minutes until soft but not browned.
2. Stir in the spices then add the cabbage, apple, red wine vinegar and sugar plus 100ml cold water. Stir until thoroughly mixed and the sugar has dissolved. Season generously.
3. Bring to the boil, then cover tightly and simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is very tender and the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the redcurrant jelly, allow to melt, then serve.
If you make this ahead, reheat it in the pan. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of cold water, cover and cook gently over a medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until piping hot.

Nikhomemadegood 2y agoI didn't have red currant jelly so I subbed cherry preserves. YUM. I bought some red currant jelly now, and it's waiting in my pantry for the next time I make this. It truly is better made a day in advance.
