Cabbage
Perishables

01/11/18



 Throughout the holidays — and even now, with all the holiday leftovers still hanging around — it can be hard to eat your vegetables! It’s so easy to reach for what’s sweet or rich even though our bodies are more susceptible to sickness during the cold months and desperately need healthy foods. 

Cabbage is one of those amazing foods our bodies crave during this time. It’s often found in slaws smattered with mayonnaise, but I want to share a healthier version.
Cabbage is in the same family as Brussels sprouts and broccoli but tends to show up in our cuisine in different ways. You can boil it or put it in soups and stews but I think raw is best. The crunchiness of cabbage is what I find most appealing. The U.S. Department of Agriculture tells us that cabbage contains 44 percent and 72 percent of vitamins C and K respectively. Cabbage also has B6 and folate, helpful for metabolism and energy. So it’s quite good for you — exactly the antidote needed for too much pie and mashed potatoes. 
Cabbage is apparently pretty easy to grow, as long as you live in a mild climate. It can be planted before the last frost and despises dryness. It needs a lot of space in a garden, requesting 12 to 24 inches between heads, according to the Old Farmers Almanac. I see it at my local market often but I have to admit I neglect it! Perhaps this recipe will be the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
