    In this week’s box there was, in addition to the list, a bag of some kind of small green. There was also a bag of basil so I am not talking about that. Does anyone know what the larger plastic bag of greens were?

    I’d love to know what any of you do with cabbage. I had fun with the first 3 pound head of cabbage I got last season, but then it kept coming, and I quickly ran out of creative ideas, especially since 3-4 lbs of cabbage goes such a long way. Thoughts?

    You can cook cabbage by sauteing in olive oil the same way you do greens. If you want to see a short video on how to cook greens, go to youtube and search mayinc211. I also use cabbage to make vegetable soup. I make a large batch of soup and freeze what we don’t eat for later use.

    There are several good recipes using cabbage in casseroles with egg ,cheddar, white sauce or undiluted cream of mushroom soup, hard booked eggs, any combo of these with broken Ritz Crackers on top and baked till hot. You do boil the cabbage first. Try Googleing cabbage casseroles.

    I just washed and chopped into slender slices a head of napa cabbage and a white onion. I sauted them in a dressing I made of 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1/4 cup rice wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil, and 1/8 cup white sugar. Then I sprinkled blanched almonds on top.

    From an old Betty Crocker cookbook a few suggestions for cabbage.
    Cook cabbage, water, thin sliced apples, brown sugar, butter, onion, salt & pepper. After about 5 min. mix in diluted vinegar and gingersnaps. Cook until gingersnaps dissolve.
    Hot Cabbage-bacon slaw
    Any cooked salad dressing thinned with sour cream. Heat for 3 min. shredded cabbage. Add chopped bacon & dressing.
    Stuffed cabbage. Make or buy meat balls put in crock pot. Top with shredded cabbage. Add salt, pepper, stewed tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar (check stuffed cabbage on line to get exact proportions). Cook for several hours.
