Spiced Red Cabbage in the Microwave

Go to:-  More Cooking Videos

This video shows you how to make  spiced red cabbage with apples (or pears) in the microwave in a fraction of the time it would take to make it on the stove top.

This wonderful winter vegetable dish goes very well with poultry and pork and not only saves time and fuel, but also frees up valuable space on the hob -  especially useful at Christmas or Thanksgiving when you may be cooking lots of other recipes in saucepans such as cranberry or bread sauce and vegetables.

Freezes very well so an excellent choice to make in advance. See below for the full written recipe.
