Cabbage : What Variety to Bring To The Dinner Table

 In today’s share, my friend Janet Cassidy and I will be discussing cabbage!  Cabbage is an awesome vegetable that is defiantly one of the best health foods of all time.  One of my favorites to grow in my home garden is a red cabbage that I use in a stir-fry.  I will share the recipe at the bottom of this post for you today along with additional links from Janet’s food preservation. Cabbage is rich in compounds that protect us from cancers and the signs of aging according to health experts.  Be sure to check out the playback or join the conversation live featured on the link below.

Growing Tips

As home gardeners there are many reasons to grow cabbage. The best time to grow cabbage is in late spring and late summer into autumn because they grow best during the cool season.  Not only are the different cabbage varieties that are part of the brassica family loaded with nutrient they are also great for healing. Red cabbage leaves have natural antiseptic properties and can be applied directly to wounds to encourage healing and comfort.   Below are a few varieties mentioned in today’s presentation that are great to grow in our home garden.

  • Red Cabbage
  • Green Cabbage
  • Bok Choy
  • Napa Cabbage
  • Savoy Cabbage

A big problem I have with growing many cabbages is defeating bugs that love the cabbage almost as much as I do.  I keep it organic by applying a soap mix to the plant in the early morning after watering or an organic insect spray you can purchase on Amazon.

Recipes

Now the fun part … cooking up the cabbages!  Below are a few of the links mentioned in the video in today’s presentation.  I’ve also included a printable recipe featuring Cabbage and Walnut Stir-fry that I enjoy cooking up year-round for my family to enjoy.
