Article: Cabbage: Its History, Uses And Culture
Joan Belfield, ND (Zone 4a) I have Norwegian genes in me, and this recipe sounds wonderful. I'm going to save it for this summer when I have home grown cabbage available.
We make most of our cabbage into kraut, and I can sit down with a pint of kraut and a fork and eat the whole thing right out of the jar.
Thanks for another very informative article Mel!
Dutchlady1 Naples, FL (Zone 10a) This is how we used to cook red cabbage in Holland as well (often substituting a bay leaf for the caraway)
Bubba_MoCity Missouri City, TX Love cabbage, especially red cabbage - something about my German heritage.
DW harvests the outer leaves as the plants are growing, blanches, thtn plunges them in an ice bath. Dries and uses for stuffed cabbage rolls, excess gets sealed with the shrinkwrapper and frozen.
planolinda Plano, TX we called it sweet and sour purple cabbage and it is so good--i have not made it in many years and forgot all about it --thanks for reminding me! good article--i throw shredded cabbage into a lot of things -soups, salads--love it cooked with potatoes-and with saint pat's day coming up there is a good irish cabbage and potato dish that i love!
Dea Frederick, MD (Zone 6a) Another cabbage lover here, in all it's wonderful variations. Great article Mel :)
DiggerDee Ffld County, CT (Zone 6b) I'm Slovak, Russian, German and Irish, so you just know I ate a lot of cabbage growing up! I have to admit I'm a bit cabbaged-out from my childhood, but I've been thinking of growing this and giving it another chance in the kitchen. Very interesting article. Thanks!
MistyPetals North Augusta, SC Nice article. Thanks for writing it.
As a cabbage lover, I keep an eye out for the mid-March sales. This is one of those kindly budget dollar stretchers FTF, for the frugal.
melody Benton, KY (Zone 7a) Glad ya'll enjoyed the article. Cabbage is one of the most under-used vegetables. A lot of bang for the buck.
Plus, it has an interesting history.
planolinda Plano, TX i think a lot of people only eat it in cole slaw
