Did you know?
How to Store It:
Fresh cabbage should be stored in the refrigerator in a plastic bag or glass container. Do not remove the outer leaves or cut the cabbage until you are ready to use it.
How to Use It:
Red cabbage is frequently used raw for salads and coleslaw. It can also be eaten cooked: boiled, steamed, braised or stir-fried. Sauerkraut and Kimchi are made from fermented cabbage. It is also enjoyed pickled.
