Recipe: Red cabbage and figs

I invented this in a moment of inspiration this evening, and family reviews were good. The quantities are necessarily approximate.

Ingredients

Enough red cabbage
A little butter (probably a non-dairy fat or oil could be used; trick is not to let it get too hot)
One cardamom pod per person
Half a dried fig per person (round fractions up)
Salt

1) Melt the butter / heat the oil.
2) Add the chopped red cabbage, stir around to ensure it's all covered.
3) Add the crushed cardamoms and sliced figs. And also a couple of pinches of salt.
4) Cover and cook on low heat, stirring every ten minutes, until the cabbage is soft. (Should take 30-45 mins.)

It worked for us, anyway. I am aware that you can also use apple and/or raspberry with cabbage, but figs do give an extra granularity of texture and depth of flavour. And cardamoms go well with all brassicas.

Mmmm, red cabbage. We used pear (instead of apple) last time we cooked any, which gave a similar granularity that was very pleasant.
