Green and red cabbage will keep for 2 weeks; the other varieties will keep for 1 week.

Preparation

 

Wash the cabbage. Shred, slice or cut wedges for the more compact varieties. Bok choy can be cut in small bite size pieces. Cabbage can be braised, boiled, sautéed, steamed, stir-fried or microwaved. Equivalents one 1 1/2 pound cabbage = 8 cups, shredded
