In learning how to cook cabbage, you will find it useful in many hot and cold dishes.This is one of the vegetables that I grew up with. It was not uncommon in the summer time for Mom to have a large pot on the stove containing fresh chopped cabbage with ham or bacon. This would be a meal for all day. When someone arrived at our home, they would be offered a bowl of cabbage and pork; and of course a cup of coffee.
There was more of a reason for me to learn how to cook cabbage than the delicious flavor which I loved. It is also very healthy to eat; that is if a lot of fattening ingredients are not added to it. It is a great source of beta carotene, fiber and vitamin C and has been linked to reducing some types of cancers.
When learning how to cook cabbage you must try many different ways. Cabbage rolls are absolutely delicious. The very best were made by my older sister Gloria. When she made them, it was enough for an army and she gave them to everyone.
Cabbage is also used in casseroles and soups; I would not think of making vegetable soup without cabbage. Many delicious cold recipes are made with cabbage like our ever popular slaw, whether with a creamy dressing or vinegar and oil, it is wonderful. Where would we be without sauerkraut? It is an important part of our German heritage.
The simplest and a delicious way to prepare fresh cabbage is by frying it in a little bacon drippings. (below)
