How to store red cabbage

Keep in the fridge or a cool veg rack. It will last up to a fortnight.

How to cook red cabbage

Discard any damaged outer leaves and the central core. Make a winter salad by shredding it finely and tossing through some walnuts, chopped apple, blue cheese and balsamic dressing. Or, for a wonderful side dish with a roast, chop up your red cabbage, 2 apples and 1 onion, combine with 50g butter, 1 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, simmer in a heavy-bottomed pan, then turn down low to cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Red cabbage season

In season from July to December. If handled very carefully and harvested in good condition, we can keep red cabbage in cold store for several months.
