Vermont has the perfect climate for growing cabbage. Plenty of rain, long summer days, and an early frost that brings out the sweetness in the vegetable. An excellent storage crop, cabbage keeps for months after the growing season has come to an end to bring a bit of crunch to our meals.
Red cabbage adds color, crunch and bright flavors to a seasonal coleslaw of onion, carrots and apples. It is also wonderful steamed or sauteed in a stir fry.
Store in the refrigerator.
