We love cabbage in this house and we especially love red cabbage, especially when it is nicely spiced and flavoured!

I served it today with hot and fluffy mashed potatoes, carrots and bangers with gravy and it went down a real treat!

Flavoured with juniper, bay leaves, onion, sultanas, apple and black pepper.   I always like to add some cinnamon , freshly grated nutmeg and cloves for an additional bit of spice and stir in a spoonful of red currant jelly right at the end . . . just for an additional glaze and sweetness which gives a real sweet and sour flavor with the cider vinegar.  In any case this is a flavor winning combination!

I have to say that I have a real fondness for the Schwartz products.  The Schwartz brand was established in 1889 by William Schwartz, the son of a German immigrant, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. As a native Nova Scotian and the descendant of German immigrants myself, Schwartz brand products have always played an important part of my holiday preparations! You can read more about their history and products here.  I think you will find it all very interesting.
