Red cabbage with apple and chestnuts; as delicious as it is beautiful.
It may be controversial but I love all the sides to a roast dinner more than I love the centerpiece and for me red cabbage is a vital winter season side. This recipe is simple yet layered with flavour and will have everyone wanting more.
The apple (in it's three forms) brings sweetness while the chestnuts bring a welcome bit of texture.
Think of this dish like you would a stew, long low cooking to bring out its natural deliciousness and it always tastes better the next day when the flavours have had time to develop and mingle.
