Peak season: Fall

If the only time you eat cabbage is when it’s drenched with mayonnaise in coleslaw or boiled with corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s time to broaden your horizons. This surprisingly versatile vegetable just begs to be used more creatively—so we’ve come up with some other options for you. Like most of its Brassica relatives, cabbage is a nutritional powerhouse. Rich in vitamin C and fiber, it also supplies isothiocyanates—chemicals that amp up the body’s natural detoxification systems. Studies suggest that cabbage may help fight breast, lung, colon and other types of cancer. Download a FREE Healthy Cabbage Recipe Cookbook!

Might be too late for this year but my mother has been making a baked chicken, fresh cabbage and sauerkraut dish for years that she originally ran across in a small town Wisconsin restaurant many years ago. If interested in the recipe let me know.
