Diary of the Plague Year: Day 27 11 April 2020: Red Cabbage

Meet Dutch – I drive into Clon every Friday to pick up my veg box. The fruit and veg is all organic and delicious.

Today I am cooking red cabbage to go with the last of my lamb stew.

  1.  Chop I red onion.
  2.  Fry in butter and olive oil until caramelized.
  3.  Chop about a third of a red cabbage.
  4.  Add to onion.
  5.  Splosh in some cider vinger.
  6.  Add a teaspoon of honey, two crushed garlic cloves, a bayleaf and some thyme.
  7.  If necessary splosh in some water.
  8.  Bring to the boil and simmer for 40 minutes.

I will be interested to see what this is like – adapted from an online recipe.

Clon was like a ghost-town on Friday. I took some pics of some of the shops and Emmet Square where there is usually a busy market.
