Ingredients

  • 1 red cabbage, quartered, cored and finely shredded
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 50g light brown sugar
  • 500ml pomegranate juice
  • 4 tbsp pomegranate molasses or balsamic glaze

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan with 1.5 litres of water and a generous amount of salt.

Remove the star anise and cinnamon, season to taste, then serve or chill until needed.
