“The classic combo of braised red cabbage and smoky bacon with juicy apple is an absolute winner ”-@JamieOliver
2rashers of bacon (finely chopped )
1 Tfennel seeds (bashed )
1small knob of butter
150 mgbalsamic vinegar
2eating apples (Peeled and chopped into 2.5cm pieces)
- Pour a good lug of olive oil into a saucepan, get it hot and add the bacon and fennel seeds. Cook until golden then add the onion and continue to cook, with the lid on, for a few more minutes until golden and sticky.
- Add the apple, followed by the cabbage chunks, salt and pepper and the vinegar, and stir everything together well.
- Put the lid back on and continue to cook on a low heat for an hour, checking and stirring every so often. You will end up with a gorgeously sticky-sweet cabbage dish that you’ll want to eat immediately, straight out of the pan! Or, if you can wait long enough, scoop it into a serving dish, pop the butter on top and sprinkle over the parsley.
