EDITOR’S NOTE (January 4, 2020): PIN here on Pinterest.
Since childhood, I’ve loved fried cabbage with crispy pieces of bacon.
I like mine with a slice (or two) of crusty Homemade White Cornbread. Delicious savory side or main dish.
Pairs well with meatloaf, baked chicken, baked pork chops, and a savory roast. Also great with buttered rolls (odd but delicious).
Cabbage is a part of the cruciferous vegetable family. Cabbage can colors range from green to red and purple. The leaves can be smooth or crinkled. Half a cup of cooked cabbage contains 81.5 micrograms of vitamin K.
Many years ago, I taught myself how to make this hearty side dish with bacon drippings and a small amount of bacon grease. Too much is not good in my opinion.
Best from late fall to early spring. Perfect addition to a favorite winter meal.
Cabbage can grow in all 50 states, but it flourishes in New York, California, Texas and Wisconsin.
You can start cabbage from seeds indoors and transplant in early spring.
It can take 70 to 100 days for a full head of cabbage to develop.
Although there are many different shapes, colors and sizes, following are common varieties grown in the U.S.
- Green Cabbage: smooth, green leaves
- Red Cabbage: smooth reddish leaves with a high level of vitamins A and C
