When I think of preserving, my thoughts don’t always lend themselves straight to the freezer which is crazy really as it’s one of today’s modern options for preserving our harvests. This week we have switched on the new (to us) chest freezer that we were given, as we will shortly have the pigs to fill it. It seems to be working fine thankfully, got to love a freebie.
So that got me thinking and when I wandered round the veg plot the other morning I noticed every single red cabbage was doing great and they would need harvesting very soon.
So for my Monday preserve, I decided to trial a Christmas cabbage recipe as those of you who were hear last year know I love red cabbage at Christmas! It freezes amazingly and tastes even better afterward in my opinion.
This new recipe from BBC Good Food which is Spiced red cabbage.
I’ve used 2 heads of cabbage for this recipe as mine came in short of the kilo that it recommended, but not far off. I also used 2 red onions of my own, very satisfying feeling. Don’t the cabbages look pretty?
