Happy St. Patricks Day Purple Cabbage



Part II of my St. Patricks Day feast was Purple Cabbage. I am not a fan of Cabbage, especially the regular kind, so I decided if I was going to do it, I was using Purple Cabbage!

It was delicious, the Ginger and Honey helped tame the the taste of the Guinness in the cooking liquid as well as giving it a more updated taste!

1 head of Purple Cabbage, outer leaves peeled off, cored and cut into 4ths
Leftover liquid from simmering your Brisket
1 one inch knob of Ginger, peel removed and crushed
2-3 tbl Honey
2 pats of butter
salt and pepper to taste
Candied Ginger if you have it, diced into small chunks

Place your cabbage into the simmering liquid remaining after removing your Brisket, using tongs, separate and stir the cabbage

Add the knob of Ginger and let simmer until the Cabbage is tender, stirring often, about 25 minutes, remove or drain the cabbage

Place in your serving bowl and add honey and a tablespoon or so of butter, mix well and serve

The color of your cabbage really stood out on the page amongst all the other entries on tastespotting. I love cabbage and wish I had known how good it was as a kid.

Thanks for sharing,

My grandmother made red cabbage, as she called it, all the time. I don't know how she did it, I'll need to find out, but yours looks great too. I'm sure she didn't use ginger, though.
