About Cabbage...

Cabbage, in the Brassica family, seems to have a bad reputation. No one knows what to do with cabbage (aside from corned beef and cabbage or sauerkraut, that is).  With such a longstanding history as a staple throughout the world, there is plenty to do with this gem. Its sweetness is enhanced by quick-cooking methods like stir frying or light steaming. It can also be cooked longer in soups and stews and give a richness to the broth. It keeps very well in the refrigerator or the root cellar and is an excellent source of vitamins K and C, and high in dietary fiber, manganese, folate, and vitamin B6. Scientists have also found that a certain component of the cruciferous vegetable family, sulforaphane, helps stimulate enzymes that guard agains the development of cancerous tumors (Greens Glorious Greens, Johnna Albi and Catherine Walthers, page 59).

Store all cabbage in plastic bags in the refrigerator and they will keep for four weeks or more if uncut.

PRESERVING CABBAGE
To preserve your overwhelming cabbage collection, you can:

Make sauerkraut (much easier than it seems) or
Beet and Cabbage Kraut

Make Quick Pickled Cabbage

Freeze it. Cut out the core, cut the cabbage into wedges or shred it, then blanch for 3-4 minutes in boiling water. Drain, pat dry, and cool. Store in ziploc bags in the freezer. Frozen cabbage is great for soups, stews and casseroles.
