For this dish, you simply bring stock, bacon and thyme to the boil in a pan on the hob, add thinly sliced cabbage, boil furiously and then simmer gently until the cabbage tastes nice. Easy as can be.
So it was very nice. I'm not going to rave about it - white cabbage is hardly on the same scale as chocolate cake or even rack of lamb. But I will cook it again because it is so easy and yet gives the humble white cabbage fantastic flavour that it sadly sometimes doesn't have. Result!
