Use

The typical cabbage flavour is unmistakable and harmonises perfectly with rich, heavy dishes. The vegetable becomes sweeter the longer it is cooked. Early varieties have a much milder flavour. White cabbage can be eaten hot or cold in many different ways, such as in salads, stews, soups, bakes or preserved as sauerkraut.

Storage

The robust autumn/winter cabbage keeps for around two months when stored in a cool place, such as a cellar. Cut heads of white cabbage keep well in the crisper drawer of the fridge wrapped in a damp cloth.
