Cabbage, Red - Organic - 1 ea (medium size, 2-3 lbs weight)
Red Cabbage is a good source of vitamin K and contains some amounts of calcium, magnesium, and zinc, which help to build and maintain healthy bones. It is also high in fiber, which makes it easier to digest foods and keep your digestive system healthy. Red cabbage has a slightly sweet and peppery taste.
Use: used the same way as other cabbages, when sliced thinly, can be eaten raw in salads, can also be used in stir-fries, sauteed.
Storage: the best when it is stored whole and unrinsed until ready to be used. When properly stored, it can last up to 2 months in the fridge. You can also remove loose leaves, wrap the head in a damp paper towel and place it in a perforated plastic bag in the fridge. It can also be stored in a root cellar or garden mound or pit.
