Slow Cooker Christmas Spiced Red Cabbage

Slow Cooker Christmas Spiced Red Cabbage

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

  1. If you have any red cabbage leftover on Christmas Day, use it in your bubble and squeak on Boxing Day.
  2. If you don't have any red wine vinegar use balsamic vinegar instead.
  3. A spoonful of redcurrant jelly stirred through at the end gives the red cabbage a lovely fruity flavour.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
