2. Add the red cabbage and let it simmer for a few minutes in the fat over medium heat.

3. Add the balsamic vinegar, acacia honey, cinnamon and star anise.

4. Stir well and simmer the red cabbage for 10-15 minutes.

5. Add the fresh cranberries and let them heat up for about 5 minutes.

6. Season with salt and a little extra honey if you want a sweeter red cabbage.
