What is Cabbage?
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable in the broccoli and brussel sprout family. It has many large, crunchy leaves layered tightly to form a round body, varying in size from an apple to a small soccer ball. Some newer varieties of cabbage have a conical shape. Cabbage is either light green, or dark purple. The flavor is mild, vaguely sulfurous, slightly sweet and vegetal. Cabbage is used across cuisines, both raw and cooked.
