About cabbage

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable and forms part of what is colloquially known in North America as "cole crops." This leafy vegetable is closely related to broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, and bok choy. The cabbage variety that you most commonly find in U.S. markets and stores is the smooth-leafed, firm-headed green cabbage. It looks like a large head of iceberg lettuce and has a rubbery texture and peppery flavor when eaten raw. When cooked, it's soft and sweet.

You are spoiled for choice when it comes to cabbages, though, as they come in over 400 different varieties. You can generally categorize the leaf types of cabbages into three categories: smooth-leaf firm-head, loose-head savoy, and crinkled-leaf cabbages. Cabbages can also have different shapes, such as oblate or round, and their color can be green, red, purple, or white. The Charleston Wakefield, for instance, has a dark-green conical-shaped head, while the Chinese cabbage has a yellow-green oblong head with frilly leaves.

FAQs About Cabbage

The first step is to shred the cabbage and then liberally sprinkle it with salt. You then want to knead the cabbage until it releases enough liquid to cover the cabbage in a natural brine. Transfer the cabbage and liquid into a quart jar and press the cabbage down so that it's submerged in the brine. If there's not enough liquid to cover the cabbage, add a bit of water.

You then want to close the jar with an airlock lid to allow carbon dioxide to be released during the fermentation period. Leave it for about two weeks. Once the sauerkraut has reached your desired flavor and texture, you can close the jar with a normal lid and store it in the fridge.

Cabbage is a versatile and nutritious vegetable you can use in many different ways. Apart from pickling or fermenting the vegetable, you can steam, stew, braise, or saute it. Cabbage is one of the main ingredients in popular Eastern dishes, such as spring rolls and stir-fries. Those on a diet often make cabbage soup since the vegetable is low in fat and calories. In the U.S., the most popular cabbage dish is arguably coleslaw, which forms one of the staple side dishes in Southern-style cooking.
