My Cabbage is not pleased with me, and I understand why!
I used to make dishes with Cabbage, at least 4 times a week. I read somewhere on the Internet that it was best to eat Cabbage that amount of times, so I purchased Cabbage in many different forms. The usual type in Denmark is called White Cabbage, which looks like this one here:
White Cabbage is very cheap, by Danish Standards, and it available mostly in the cooler months. Cooler might mean all year in Denmark, but in the summer it is called Summer White Cabbage, and is usually smaller in size.
I’ve cooked it and steamed it, sauteed it and eaten it as Coleslaw. I’ve told my family about it, its benefits and its different forms, so much that they probably have considered banishing me to the Pointless Forest – with little Oblio!
But times do change, and my interests do too. Danish White Cabbage was placed on the back-burner, thus allowing things like Lentils, and Sweet Potatoes to take its place. In another week or so, Burning Nettles will be large enough to pick “ow, ooh, ow” ready to be made into soup and such.
Today will be a Stir-fry concoction with celery (called Leaf Celery), and onions (called Løg – which is Bulb in English), and perhaps some tomatoes (Tomater – if you were following the Danish?).
Cabbage Neglect is not punishable by law in Denmark, although some might like to consider it? The Death Penalty is also not allowed, but there are so few crimes that warrant that kind of extremism, like Death of a Cabbage, and Cabbage-abuse, that I wouldn’t think it likely.
If you are into Cabbage then drop me a line. I don’t, however, indulge in strange Cabbage Sex Orgies, so that type of response is not wanted on my blog site!
Take a Cabbage out to lunch. I will be……
