Braised Red Cabbage with Cumberland Sauce

My braised red cabbage with our Cumberland sauce is so easy to make. Our wonderful Cumberland Sauce is made using oranges, lemons, redcurrants, unrefined sugar and port which works brilliantly with the red cabbage. No more vinegary, astringent and compulsory red cabbage side dishes!
