It’s not just for Christmas!
Cut the red cabbage into thin slices (long and thin is best) – removing the core makes it less tough.
Gently fry the red onions in the butter in a large pan for 5-10 mins.
Add the orange zest, mixed spice and cinnamon stick and cook for a further minute.
Add the shredded cabbage and stir through fully.
Add the port (or water), red wine vinegar and orange zest.
Add the water (or double amount of water if no port), stir and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat to a slow simmer, cover and cook for 45 mins or so until the cabbage is nice and soft.
