1. Slice the red cabbage (without the stalk) into strips or cut finely, add salt and lemon juice and knead vigorously with your hands for a few minutes. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes.

2. Peel, quarter, core and dice the pears. Peel and finely dice the onion. Heat oil in a large pot. Sauté onions in it over medium heat until translucent. Add pears and red cabbage and sauté briefly.

3. Add red wine, pear juice, 200ml water and vinegar. Add spices to the pot in a spice bag. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer covered for about 1 hour. Stir occasionally. Add a little liquid if needed.

4. After an hour, test to see if the red cabbage is soft enough. If not, simmer a little longer. Remove spices, stir in the jam. Season with salt and pepper.
