1largered cabbageouter leaves, stalk and core removed, sliced across the grain approx 5mm
2largebramley applespeeled, cored and diced
150gdark brown sugar
salt and pepper to season
Heat the oil in an large, heavy bottomed saucepan, over a low heat, then fry the onion gently until translucent.
Add the cabbage and the apple, and stir to mix with the oil and onions.
Add all the remaining ingredients, stir through well, cover and then simmer over a low heat for approx. one hour thirty minutes. Keep an eye on the liquid to ensure that it doesn't boil dry. If that looks to be happening, add a few more tbsps of water.
By the time you reach the last 10 minutes of the cook, the cabbage should start to have a dark shiny sheen, and the liquid should almost have been absorbed/evaporated. Taste and season.
Transfer to a serving dish/oven dish, cover with a sheet of foil, shiny side down, and keep warm until ready to serve.
