Ingredients

  • 1 lb. (about one medium) red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 3/4 cup coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 3-4 garlic cloves 
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 tsp allspice berries
  • 4 bay leaves

Instructions

1

Place the shredded cabbage in a colander over the sink and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 2-3 hours, then drain and wash away the salt. Dry it with a towel. The salt works to release water from the cabbage.  Arrange it in sterilized glass jars.

2

Put the vinegar, red wine, sugar, allspice berries, garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave it to infuse, for about an hour. Discard the bay leaves.

3

Pour the liquid in the jars to cover the cabbage. Leave it to cool, before sealing the jars tightly and storing them in the fridge for at least 2 weeks. It will keep for several months.

    I don't think I have enough jars..I actually don't have any empty jars 🙂

    Does it taste similar to sauerkraut? Grandma used to make the whole barrel and we were eating through winter 😀

      Mary, more likely you will need two jars. But I would double the recipe and make more at ones, its that good!
