There is probably a reason that cabbage is such a big part of early spring time recipes and that reason is most likely that it happens to be in season. Look at St. Patrick's Day; cabbage is a big part of most people's meals. I like to use cabbage in many ways that lettuce can be used because I love the taste of it and the fact that in warmer dishes, it stays crispy. I use it on my tacos and when I make homemade gyros, they get a tossing of cabbage on top as well. Cabbage can be used in so many ways! If you have extra cabbage, try blanching it and storing it in the freezer. Make sure it is in air-tight containers. To help you use up the cabbage you have on hand, here are 10 delicious cabbage recipes.
