Time for Red Cabbage

Think Winter think food! This is the season for red cabbage. This vibrant brassica adds colour to any plate. Interestingly the first description of red cabbage dates back to 1570 England, although it was introduced to all European countries by the Romans in the 14th Century. Enjoy slow cooked with apple, bacon and balsamic vinegar. Delicious!
