Cabbage, mon choux
« on: February 10, 2019, 06:18:54 PM »
Glorious stuff, isn't it? Raw in a salad or coleslaw, stir-fried with loads of butter, pickled into sauerkraut or kimchi, braised with cinnamon ... it's all good.

I suppose I'd have to go with Savoy on a desert island.

Does anyone have any nice cabbage stories to tell?

Savoy, Chinese, Red (braised with apples, wine and spices esp.) all good. But hard white cabbage, that's where I get off.

Mate, cabbage and choux, that's a bad mix. You want cream and chocolate with choux pastry. Not cabbage.

Big old german twangerwurst with rotkohl. Rotkohl on toast. Feeding a whole cabbage to a pig. Sitting on a fence in dungarees eating a whole cabbage. https://gfycat.com/politelameaoudad . A good hearty concept veg.

I made a Reuben back in the late 2000s but I chickened out of using sauerkraut because of the pong, so I used coleslaw instead. Worst. sandwich. ever (imagine that in Courtney Cox voice).

So eventually, a decade later, I got the nerve to put sauerkraut in the Reuben sandwich, and I don't know how much heavy lifting its doing alongside the pastrami and Russian dressing but damn that's some good eating son (say, Shia LaBeouf voice). And I daresay it has changed my life.

I ate zero cabbage before exploring central Europe, but no I'll demolish a plate of red cabbage, preferably with quarter of duck and dumplings.

I had sauerkraut with strapacky for the first time, which worked really well.

Varza a la Cluj is worth trying. Think Lasagna with cabbage...but..good. focus on that being good.

I'd love some cabbage jam right now.  John McDonnell gets a huge solid white cabbage of Jez's allotment, rolls it in gravel and forces it, whole, up Tom Watson's bottomhole.  We're just watching.

Cabbage is usually present in the best umami experiences in cuisine. Hooray for cabbage!

My favorite S Asian place does a cabbage with a load of 1mm black spheres of something that probably isn't cabbage. I will eat a slaw with vinegar based dressing but the mayo kind can get to fuck.

Spring greens are my choice of underrated cabbages. Boiled with salt in strips with mustardy mash potato and (veg) sausages and gravy.

Cabbage is a great at parties if you just want to be left alone.

Do brussels sprouts count as cabbages or is that too EU?

I love braised red cabbage with onion/apple/etc with a roast. It also makes great pickle, and a colourful pink coleslaw. But for plain boiled/stir fried cabbage I go with green.

That pickled cabbage salad they give you in the Japanese restos in France as a starter.  Also Bigos is the best food ever.

Gramigne is good. *

We tried making Bigos last year after reading someone praising it on here and were a bit underwhelmed.

*That's what we call the recipe from Geometry of Pasta with sausage and cabbage.

We've tried growing them and between club root, slugs and pigeons it's not been worth the effort.

The tops off the scratty twigs that were supposed to be producing sprouts were flipping amazing. Probably worth doing again even if there's no sproutage.

I love cabbage,but I had to stop making jars of pickled cabbage as the lids kept popping making the place really stink.

Also this documentary below is about cabbage soup.
