Cabbage is one of the oldest vegetables in existence. It also has antioxidants that help protect skin from UV light.
Cabbage heads should feel crisp, firm and heavy for their size.
Remove any loose cover leaves and store in plastic wrap in the refrigerator for 2-4 weeks. Cabbage flavor and odor increases with storage.
