Preparing Cabbage: Cabbage can be eaten raw or cooked. Green and red cabbage are especially good raw, but all varieties can be softened and sweetened by the “cooking” properties of vinegar or lemon juice, which causes the cabbage to behave similarly to cooking it lightly would. Cabbage can be cooked in most dishes that call for greens. It is excellent in salads on its own or with other salad greens and lends itself well to Mexican and Asian flavors. It can also be steamed, boiled and cooked into other dishes.Leaves also excellent stuffed. There are as many ways to prepare cabbage as there are regions where it is prepared.
