Remarks
As always with Yotam Ottolenghi, this very simple, but every detail counts. You will notice how the cheese isn't browned, only added on top of the cabbage as it comes out of the oven, along with the tarragon – just perfect!

If you are using a normal-sized cabbage, cut the slices in half or they will be too big to cook right through properly.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
