3-4small applesminced or alternatively on small glass of apple sauce/puree - around 400g
2cups of water
salt and pepper to taste
sugar to taste
clean the red cabbage and cut it in small stripes - works perfectly in a food processor
fill the cloves and the bay leaves in a spices/tea strainer or something similar and put with the other ingredients in a pressure cooker (works also in a normal pot, but please plan around an hour of cooking time and be careful that there´s always enough liquid in the pot)
Set the heat to high and cook for 10 minutes, then put the cooker under cold water to release the steam.
Remove the spices/tea strainer and add salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
Since this recipe produces a large amount of red cabbage a good way to keep it is to fill it up in glasses with a screw cap. Fill the red cabbage with a simmer into the glass and then add enough liquid so the surface is covered. Lasts at least two years - but usually it will be eaten long before that :-)
