      green cabbage

      From: Dagele Brothers Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Florida, NY) 
      Bright and crisp while raw, this cruciferous vegetable mellows when cooked. A little butter and salt over gently cooked cabbage goes a long way and pairs well with roasted meats. Raw cabbage is great for a kicker winter salad — add shredded cabbage to a bowl of hearty greens, then toss in salty cheese, crunchy nuts, and cranberries or roasted beets.
