Boiled, red cabbage is one of the traditional winter vegetables. Red cabbage is usually cut or grated. The boiling time is then at least 20 minutes in plenty of water. To soften the cabbage, sometimes a small amount of vinegar is added. The taste can be adjusted by adding cloves, laurels, cinnamon and/or sugar, red wine and, above all, apple cut into cubes. Rainforests can also be an addition. Sometimes the cabbage is bound with cornstarch or flour. In traditional Dutch cuisine, red cabbage is a good match for red meat and Fish.
