1 head red cabbage, cored and sliced thinly
1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large stick cinnamon
2 whole star anise
Place ingredients in a lidded pot. Bring to a boil. Stir. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer for 45 minutes or until fully wilted and soft, stirring occasionally. Remove cinnamon stick and star anise and discard. If liquid remains, bring to a boil until it evaporates. Cool then refrigerate. Serve chilled.
