Ever had a cooker crisis on Christmas Day? I think we've all been there haven't we, with too many dishes and too little space. I try and make as much as I can ahead of time these day's - I cook my meat the day before (and the gravy too), pre cook my sprouts, par boil the potatoes and make and cook the stuffing in a loaf tin. It all helps come Christmas morning and this year I've called on my slow cooker for help too.
This slow cooker red cabbage dish is absolutely delicious. You just bung everything in the slow cooker before you go to bed on Christmas Eve and you wake up on Christmas morning to the most amazing festive fragrance imaginable. The red cabbage takes a good 8-10 hours to cook and you might want to give it a stir every now and then, but other than that you can just leave it to do its thing. Once it's cooked to your liking, just turn the slow cooker to the 'keep warm' setting until you're ready to serve. One large red cabbage will serve 8 as part of Christmas lunch, but the recipe is easily doubled if you're catering for more people. If you do double the quantities make sure you use a 6 litre slow cooker - it wont all fit in otherwise.
TIPS FOR CHRISTMAS SPICED RED CABBAGE
- If you have any red cabbage leftover on Christmas Day, use it in your bubble and squeak on Boxing Day.
- If you don't have any red wine vinegar use balsamic vinegar instead.
- A spoonful of redcurrant jelly stirred through at the end gives the red cabbage a lovely fruity flavour.
