Heat a large pot with a tablespoon of clarified butter, add the grated apples and the finely chopped onion to the pot & sauté for 2 – 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Now add the red cabbage, mix everything together and sauté the red cabbage briefly. Season everything with a good pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper, then add a dash of red wine vinegar, the tea bag with the spices, 3 tablespoons of wild cranberries and finally 250 milliliters of red wine.

Then mix everything together well & as soon as the red wine is simmering, simmer with the lid on for about 45 – 60 minutes over low heat, stirring the red cabbage occasionally. As soon as the desired consistency is reached, remove the tea bag with the spices & then serve with game goulash, for example. Have fun imitating!
