Red Cabbage with Pears

This recipe rings the changes on the old favourite, cabbage with apples, using pears instead. All varieties of dessert pears can be used successfully in this dish, which has a gentle, mellow flavour after long, slow cooking. It's a perfect accompaniment for bacon.

ingredients

serves 4 - 6
1 garlic clove, skinned and crushed
900 g (2 lb) red cabbage, finely shredded
2 large firm pears, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
salt and pepper
150 ml (1/4 pint) vegetable or chicken stock
30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice

method

1. Rub the garlic round the sides of a 3.4 litre (6 pint) casserole. Spoon half of the cabbage into the dish, followed by a layer of pears. Season to taste and repeat the layers. Pour over the stock and lemon juice.

2. Cover tightly and bake at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for about 2 hours or until the cabbage is just tender. Adjust the seasoning and stir gently to mix together before serving.
