Anna's Christmas Red Cabbage

This is a traditional swedish christmas dish that combines well with spareribs. It is usually seasoned with cloves but I never use that, instead I season with a lot of freshly ground white pepper that makes the cabbage slightly hot.

  • 2 kgs red cabbage
  • 4 tart apples
  • 2 onions
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2-3/4 golden syrup
  • 100-200 ml vinegar, light or dark, balsamico or apple cider - it's your choice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper (NOT black pepper)
Shred the cabbage finely, peel the apples and cut them into wedges. Peel and chop the onion. Melt butter in a large pan and fry the cabbage, stirring occasionally. Add apples, onion, salt and vinegar and stir. Put the lid on and let the cabbage cook on low heat until soft, about 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the syrup and white pepper, stir and season to taste. Add more syrup, vinegar, salt or pepper until you think it tastes good.
