Cabbage

Cabbage is in the same family as broccoli, kale, collards, and many other health power houses.  It was domesticated in Europe before 1000 BCE, but can now be found in food from all over the world. Cabbage is a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and dietary fiber.

I love raw cabbage salads during the hot days of summer, there’s something about its crisp, crunchiness that just makes me feel cooler right away.  Of course it is also good cooked and pickled into sauerkraut.  Cabbage heads will store for a long time in your refrigerator, so don’t worry about using this part of your box right away.
