Method

For a delicious Christmas side dish recipe that's easy to make but full of flavour, try this wonderful red cabbage and cranberry dish. It's flavoured with red wine vinegar and freshy cranberries for a fruity festive treat.

  1. Heat the oil and butter together in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook for 7 minutes until softened. Stir in the cabbage and cook for a couple of minutes, then pour over the vinegar and sugar and season well. Cover, turn the heat to low and cook for 30-40 minutes until softened and most of the liquid has boiled away (at this point, you can freeze for up to 1 month).
  2. Stir in the cranberries and cranberry sauce and cook for another 5 minutes until the fruit has plumped and the cabbage is glossy.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Cook as instructed and allow to cool completely. Then transfer to an airtight, freezer-safe container, seal and freeze for up to 1-3 months. To serve, defrost thoroughly in the fridge overnight before reheating. To reheat and serve, place on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the dish is heated through.
