  • Slice the onions and shred the cabbage thin, discarding the tough core.
  • Melt half the butter in a large saucepan and cook the onions for a few minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Add the cabbage and stir well, to coat it with the butter.
  • Add the Thompson raisins, the hazelnuts, the mixed spice and the water and cook, covered, for about 10 minutes or until the water has evaporated.
  • Finally, add the remaining butter and the crushed garlic. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve with a nut roast, for example.
