Tips on cabbage:  When buying cabbage select the ones with the greenest leaves on the outside. Dark green leaves means more flavor.  Once you cut a head of cabbage it starts losing its Vitamin C content.  This is why it is better to shred cabbage yourself for your recipes instead of buying it already shredded. Uncut cabbage will keep up to 2 weeks in a perforated plastic bag, once cut wrap in plastic wrap but use within a few days for best flavor and nutrients.
