The Profile


Cabbage, also known as Brassica oreracea var. capitata, is a firm, dense-leaf vegetable closely related to cauliflower, Brussels sprouts & broccoli that may be found in shades of green, white & purple. Some varieties offer smooth leaves whilst others may be frilly in texture. It may be boiled, steamed, pan-fried, roasted or eaten raw in Buttermilk Cole Slaw & Honey-Sesame Slaw. Cabbage adds wonderful texture to soups when added close to the end of cooking times as well. It is treated as an annual crop & offers sound nutritional value as it’s a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C & fiber. Learn how to clean & core cabbage that may be used for a variety of meal solutions.

How To Clean & Core Cabbage

A head of cabbage should be cleaned properly before use. It’s important to remove the dirt particles that get caught between the leaves. Once clean, use right away in specific recipe applications or wrap loosely in a paper towel & store up to 5 days in the vegetable crisper until ready to steam or make a batch of cole slaw

Remove a few of the outer leaves & discard them. Place the cabbage core side down over a wooden cutting board & carefully slice it in half using a freshly sharpened chef knife. Next, place the cut sides under cool running water. Then, turn it cut side down & allow as much of the water to release as possible. Give it several good shakes to ensure that indeed is the case. Working with one half at a time, use a knife to cut a triangular shape around the core & remove it. It may then be placed flat side down on the cutting board & sliced into wedges. Let individual recipe instructions guide you.
