There's 12 days till Christmas and I'm feeling really festive this year - I've been making lots of gifts, foods and crafts so I thought I'd share one a day till Christmas. To kick it off is some spicy pickled Christmas cabbage, when I went to Munich I fell in love with pickled cabbage so when I came across this recipe I had to try it. There's just enough time to make this in time for Christmas as you're meant to leave it for 2 weeks and I think it'd be the perfect pickle to go with your leftovers on boxing day!
I followed this recipe from the mail online, my only warning is that boiling vinegar leaves a really strong smell and it lingered for a few days! The colour of it is fantastic, it's a really bright magenta and it tastes amazing with sausages. It makes 5 jars so I've tied some ribbons round it to make it look beautiful and given the other 4 away as gifts. Yum yum!
