Preparation: Chop the cabbage and pour a small amount of water over it; add the spices and boil together for 1.5 hours. Boil dried mushrooms separately then add to the boiling cabbage. Cut the meat into small pieces and fry it in lard until it turns golden. Add the wine and simmer for a few minutes. Fry the ham and chopped onions separately. Add everything to the boiling cabbage and boil for another hour. At the end, add the plums, cut into strips, to the cabbage with salt, pepper and the rest of the wine. Sweeten with sugar or honey. Bigos tastes better after a few days and multiple
heatings.
