Your Mother Forgot to Cook the Cabbage


I come from a coleslaw family, J comes from a cooked cabbage family.  I had never had cooked cabbage until I met him, the first time he cooked for me he made stuffed cabbage - delicious but a bit complicated to make. More than once when we were visiting my family, J remarked, "your mother might be slipping, she forgot to cook the cabbage."  

For you cooked or not cooked?

  3. I like both cooked and raw, try it steamed with other mixed veggies, with a drizzle of sesame oil and soy sauce.

    I like broccoli and cauliflower too...and as Mark Twain said, "Cauliflower ain't nothin' but cabbage with a college education."

  4. Both.
    I grew up in a household where mom made slaw, mom stuffed it, mom boiled it, mom...if you can think of it made it. Cabbage was cheap and she had a dollar to stretch. I love cabbage in all forms.

  6. Mama cooked cabbage and made cole slaw from raw cabbage. I love cabbage both ways. The aroma of cooked cabbage is heavenly. Now, I cut cabbage in large pieces, about 3"x1" and throw it in soup the last 30 minutes.
