30 – 40 kottbullar
3 apples
4 potatoes
1/2 white cabbage
1 teapsoon sugar
1 chicken or beef stock cube
1 1/3 cups cider
pinch of allspice

Peel the potatoes, roughly slicing both them and the cabbage. Peel and de-core the apples and cut them into segments.

Heat the potatoes and cabbage in a little butter. Add the sugar and continue heating until the mixture colours a little.

Add the segments of apple and heat for another minute or so.

Add the cider and stock cube. Add salt and allspice to taste and cook for about 5 minutes.

Fry the meatballs as per the instructions on the packages. Add them when ready and cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve the casserole in deep plates; crispbread makes a good accessory.
