A colourful side for your Christmas dinner - Recipe inspired by BBC Good Food
Shred the red cabbage, finely chop the onions, peel and roughly chop the apples.
Heat the oil in a large casserole dish before adding the onions and cooking them on a medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Then add the star anise and cinnamon stick.
Pour in the red wine, allow to simmer until slightly reduced.
Add the cabbage, sugar and apples and stir well. Season to taste.
Cover the dish and allow to simmer on a low heat for around 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Serve once the cabbage is tender, with the cinnamon stick and star anise on top. Enjoy!
Note: This can be made in advance! Cook 1-2 days before serving or freeze for up to 4 months - just reheat on the hob before serving.
