Invented by Tracy ..........

Yesterday I was quite creative. I did some sewing and made something very very nice to wear. Then, at dinner time I created a new vegetable dish - not the white porcelain vegetable dish - but a new edible vegetable dish. Here is the recipe...

Half a red cabbage - sliced into pieces approx 1/2 inch thick

A dozen dried Prunes

2 dozen dried Cherries

1 medium size apple (Golden Delicious or Granny Smith)

Cook the red cabbage in boiling water (to which you have added half a tablespoon of sugar) until it is almost done (about 12 minutes). Five minutes before it's done - throw in the prunes (chopped into 1cm size pieces), cherries and the apple (Cut into 2cm pieces - no need to peel).

Strain the cabbage, apple, cherries and prune bits and place into a preheated baking dish. Liberally sprinkle with best Olive oil and add (sprinkle liberally) another half tablespoon of sugar.

Place into a hot over (180 deg c) and cook for another 20 minutes.

The sugar caramelizes onto the cabbage / fruit mixture, and the resulting taste is delicious.

We had this with Pork steaks and some roasted new potatoes.
