Red cabbage 1/2
Hot water 2 litres
Eggs 2
Lemon juice 2 tbsp

1
Roughly chop the red cabbage and boil in the hot water.

Add the lemon juice - you'll see an instant change of colour from blue to red - it reminds you of your science classes at school!
3
Drain the liquid from the cabbage into a bowl and add the boiled eggs whilst it's still warm. Keep for 2 hours. You can use the cooked cabbage in other recipes.
