Can we talk Cabbage?

Hey folks,
I really only eat cabbage 2 times a year. St. Patricks day is the basic green cabbage, and Christmas is a sweet and sour Red Cabbage. I am trying to work more cabbage into my meal plans since it is pretty cheap and nutrient rich.

How do you guys enjoy it?


Kachow! Joshua

We have a crock of sauerkraut fermenting right now. Should get the first check of it Sunday or Monday.

I like cabbage in salads. I also like cole slaw and Danish Red Cabbage - Rødkål (Roedkaal). I made a pot of that tonight. The cabbage weighed 1.6 kg and I didn't change the amounts of any of the other ingredients in the recipe. It will keep in the fridge for weeks and weeks and we will use it as garnish on sandwiches and heat it in the microwave to go with meals.

One of these days I will take Frank's suggestion and make some sauerkraut.

Slice cabbage on a mandolin, fry cube of speck till crispy, add cabbage, caraway seeds a glug of white wine, put the lid on and braise for about 60 mins when the liquid should have evaporated.

Just finished making a small batch of kimchee.

Also this week I slivered some cabbage for stir-frying with pork, onions, dried mushrooms. For this I barely cook the cabbage, enjoying the crunch.

Cabbage rolls are a once-every-winter thing that I've yet to do this year.

I hated cooked cabbage as a child, but thank heaven learned to love it, because I had to practically live on it when I was in my 20s because it was so inexpensive.

Of course there are hundreds of slaw recipes.

Even if you're making a tossed lettuce salad, a shaving of cabbage adds some crunch.

There's a dish made with cabbage and potatoes. I get it mixed up, someone out there help me. Colcannon? Bubble and Squeak? Something else. I've had it and made it and still cannot remember what it is called.

Oh, how could I forget? In Hawaii we had something called Portuguese bean soup. Made it many times.

Gwampke (or similar) is Polish. My MIL called it Halupke (Slovene or Slovak, not sure which or maybe both). I think every eastern European country has their version with its own name and slightly (or maybe very) different preparations. Over the years I took my mom's, my MIL's, and my mom's best friend's preparations, added my own. So it is Slovene, Slovak, Polish and wherever Mom learned hers.

I cannot remember where my best friend's husband's family comes from, but he insists on no tomato in the sauce, but then, likes tomato so much she prepares it on the side!
