Braised Red Cabbage - Haudutettu punakaali

Red cabbage is a great option for the veggie in your Christmas table: it's domestic, keeps well and is very seasonal! It also contains lots of flavonoids and vitamin C. This dish is very easy to make and it can be made a few days beforehand (or even more, but then you need to sterilize the jars properly etc.). This recipe is actually Swedish: braised red cabbage is part of Swedish Christmas. It's not actually that common in Finland to eat this although it should be!
