spring, late summer, fall

this is one tough vegetable. I just throw it in the vegetable cooler where it can keep for at least a month. The firmer the head of cabbage, the longer it will store. The longer it sits, the more the outer leaves will wilt (assuming you store it uncovered as I do) but it’s still delicious. I speak from experience, having had a head of red cabbage in my vegetable drawer for about 3 months.When it arrived in the height of summer, I just tucked it away intending to get to it soon. “Soon” turned out to be several months, but it was as perfect then as it was the day it arrived. Really.
