“Wonderful with the Christmas Ham I've also posted. I tend to leave it cooking on a low flame until its tender, I've tried to give an idea of how long this takes but it all depends on the size of cabbage and how you like it. Don't worry, it can stay on the hob at a low temp for a rather long time without spoling (I've left it there for a couple of hours whilst waiting for other things to cook and its been great).”
