The wonderful thing about cabbage is that it stores for such a long time! Winter cabbage is even more special because the plant protects itself from freezing temperatures by converting the starches in its cells to sugar, sweetening the flavor of the cabbage. The natural sweetness of this veggie is brought out the coconut peanut sauce in this Vegan Stir Fried Cabbage recipe.
STORAGE: Wait until you are ready to use the cabbage before washing it. Store a whole cabbage head in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Cabbages can store in optimum conditions up to a month-- sometimes longer! If you only use part of the cabbage, be sure to wrap the remaining cabbage tightly in plastic wrap and store it in the crisper drawer. Use within one to two weeks.
