Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over a gentle heat. Add the shredded cabbage and vinegar, apples and sugar. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover the pan and cook for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
