How To Cabbage Stew. Cabbage Stew is one of Ghana and West Africa special meal.

Cabbage is a leafy vegetable of the Brassica family, which also includes broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, and it’s one of the oldest known vegetables, dating as far back as 4,000 B.C. in China.

It comes in several varieties—green, red, and savoy—which can be eaten raw or cooked, thrown in a soup, tossed in a salad or stir fry, topped on fish tacos, or simply just steamed by itself.

Cabbage provides fiber and other nutrients like potassium and vitamin K, making it a great complement to a healthy lifestyle. Its fiber and water content can help to prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive tract.

 

HOW TO STORE AND PREP CABBAGE 

Store it properly in a cool environment like the refrigerator, basement, garage or cellar, and it will long outlast tender leafy greens.

To prepare, first remove any wilted or scraggly leaves. If leaves are primarily intact and clean, wash the outer leaves, then trim off any bruised areas, so as to waste as little as possible.

Cut the cabbage in half, then cut out the triangle shaped core on either side with a sharp paring knife. Rinse to remove any dirt.
