Eaten in almost every country in the world, cabbage is one of the most versatile vegetables available.  It adapts to many climates and altitudes.  Composed of 90% water, it holds a significant amount of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium and manganese. Low in calories, cabbage offers only 15 calories per one cup serving, cooked.

To store, refrigerate cabbage in the hydrator drawer.  Do not remove outer leaves before storing.  A plastic bag will help retain moisture but is not necessary.

Often used in coleslaw, shred or chop cabbage and toss with grated carrots and chopped green onions.  Add a mayonnaise or yogurt dressing or try a vinaigrette.

To prepare, cut cabbage into wedges.  Steam them for 5-7 minutes and serve with butter, salt and pepper, and top with grated cheese.  Try sauteing cabbage and using it as a stir-fry with other vegetables.  When cooking cabbage, remember to cook it lightly.  Overcooked cabbage may produce a strong flavor and odor.
