While white cabbage is the popular variety, red cabbage offers more nutritional benefits as well as a bold and peppery flavor. Cabbages are a good source of vitamins C and K!
Storage: Store the whole head of cabbage in an airtight bag in a fridge for up to a week. It will lose freshness rapidly once the head is chopped. If you only need half a head, place the remaining half in an airtight bag and add a few drops of water onto the cut side and refrigerate. The cut half should last another few days.
Preparation: Cabbages can be eaten raw or cooked. Make sure to remove outer leaves then either steam, boil, stir-fry or bake. Commonly used in salads and coleslaw and sliced thinly in soups and stir-fries.
