Sorry guys, but I’m mainly writing this for me so I’ll know what to do with all of the cabbage that’s in my garden. We’ll be eating it in abundance for the next several weeks because we have LOTS of these bad boys ready to be picked. Isn’t it a beauty? I’m so excited! This is our first year for growing cabbage and it was actually a success!
Why You Should Eat Cabbage
Cabbage packs a nutritional punch. It is a excellent source of polyphenols, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin K, antioxidants, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese,amino acids, and fiber.
It has anti-inflamatory properties, is cancer-fighting, and great for detoxification.
Aside from the health benefits, it is also VERY inexpensive, in season most of the year, quick cooking, versatile, and easy to work with. In my opinion, cabbage is under-appreciated. I think it’s delicious. My kids still aren’t wild about it, but they are learning. That’s ok, more for me!
How to Cook it
There are many ways to cook cabbage. I often take my grandma’s lead and boil it with some bacon drippings and salt. I like her yummy simple southern method. I can only serve it to my family boiled so many times though.
Here are 10 other easy ways to cook cabbage from some of my fellow Village Green Network friends.
