About spring cabbage

Spring cabbage is in the Brassica family, including cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli. These cabbages grow slowly over the winter and are sold in stores from late February through June. As the first cabbages of the calendar year, spring cabbages are also known as "spring greens" in many areas.

Spring cabbages are cone-shaped and smaller than other cabbages sold in supermarkets. Unlike the tight leaves of the green cabbage, spring cabbage leaves are loosely held together. These prized spring greens also lack the tough, fibrous heart common in other cabbage varieties. Spring cabbages are slightly sweet and have a soft, silky texture when cooked.

Spring cabbage is a highly nutritious vegetable. A 1-cup serving of raw cabbage provides:
  • 22 calories
  • 1 gram of protein
  • 2 grams of fiber
  • 85% of your daily vitamin K
  • 54% of your daily vitamin C

Fresh spring cabbage should be stored loosely wrapped in plastic in your refrigerator. Properly stored, spring cabbage will stay fresh for up to two weeks. If you only use part of the spring cabbage, place the remainder in an air-tight bag, with a few drops of water on the cut edge. Cut cabbage should be used within a few days.

Spring cabbage may also be frozen for use in soups and stews. Cabbage must be blanched before freezing to prevent a loss of color, flavor, and texture. Blanching spring cabbage is simple:

No. After extensive testing, the Ball canning company declared cabbage to be unsafe for canning in 1977. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) also does not recommend canning spring cabbage. The reasons for this are:
  • Spring cabbage loses its bright green color when canned, becoming unsightly and gray.
  • The flavor of spring cabbage greatly intensifies when canned. Canned cabbage is often considered inedible as a result of its unpleasant flavor.
  • The heat treatment of canning is not sufficient when dealing with more dense and rigid cabbage leaves. As a result, cabbage leaves would be under-processed, allowing dangerous pathogens (such as botulism) to survive.
Both Ball and the USDA recommend freezing, pickling, and fermenting as safe and tasty forms of long-term storage.
