Cabbage comprises an entire family — brussels sprout, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, and kale are all members — but most of us think of a tightly-wound pale green or purple head.

In fact the name comes from a French word which means “head”.

In reality cabbage comes in all shapes and sizes and varies with how “tight” the head is.

Most of the time I take off the first couple layers of the outside, using them more as a protective wrapper until I’m ready to use the crisp inside.

When choosing cabbage at the market, remember that the head should be heavy for its size.
