I discovered this Bourne and Wallis picked Red Cabbage in my local farm shop. My husband loves pickled red cabbage it with cold meat and cheese but until now we’ve never found a nice commercial version. We were really pleased to find that the Bourne and Wallis pickled red cabbage is just like the home made variety.
The cabbage itself has the right texture crisp without being like eating raw cabbage. You can also taste the good quality barley malt vinegar that adds to the flavour. The cabbage and malt vinegar and spices come together nicely with meat, cheese and complement dishes such as pork pies.
The ingredients list is reassuringly brief, listing just Red Cabbage, salt, ascetic acid, barley malt vinegar, sugar and mixed spice flavouring.
Have a look at their website for stockists and their other products.
