Cabbage

Probably my most favourite cabbage. I would finely shred it and either steam it or put into a pan of boiling water - only about a maximum of 1" water, with a small grating of nutmeg, salt (if desired) and a small knob of butter to give it some gloss.

Also nice to include chopped bacon that's been grilled or fried well.

savoy

I like it shredded and stir-fried in a little hot oil until it sinks down to not much. Doesn't take long, 5-10 minutes depending on how much cabbage.

use the big outer leaves as a wrapping for mince pork/beef meatballs, mixed with chinese spices.

shredded and parboiled and stirred through mashed tatties.

as addtion to stews/caseroles.

I completely agree with everyone aboves' comments. Smashing veg. You can mic it very effectively - I personally prefer this to any other cooking for it: Shred to the style you are looking for, place in a glass casserole dish with 1/4 cup water and put glass lid on casserole. Mic for an appropriate time (depends on your oven and how much, of course) and leave with lid on for a minute or so. Probably around 3 mins cook average. Keeps flavour, colour and texture. Do try it. One of those things a mic does especially well.

I like to drain, add a knob of butter and pepper, stir very gently with fork and serve.

My favourite cabbage too. I take out the main stalk, shred it and steam it for a few minutes. Finally got my daughter to try it a couple of weeks ago and she asked for more.
The dog loves it too!

Why is some cabbage so disgusting? - it is in the cooking, my gran's was vile and Thomasina get banned from the kitchen when we have a cabbage to cook ;) I don't know what it is they do to get such horrid stuff. My school managed it, too.

Cabbage or Kale?

I like Savoy Cabbage...a lot. Its one of the few veg I would eat as a kid and enjoy,consequently I cook it loads now in many different ways.Busting into this thread....recently eating out I've discovered Kale! I like it, I've eaten it twice and it was delish and once horribly bitter.How do you cook Kale? and what would make it be bitter the other time?

Savoy cabbage (kale)

My wife grew up on a mixed farm in the south of England and kale was (to them) regarded as animal fodder. But to make you chuckle, she mistakenly thought that what they were feeding the cows was purple sprouting! So for many years I was buying expensive purple sprouting she'd turn her nose up...I shouldn't have let on because her dad put her straight and now she loves it and I have to buy twice as much. Some of these green veges for me are a vehicle for lots of butter....asparagus, purple sprouting, brussles, savoy....

savoy cabbage

I like it cooked quickly in butter & the water left on the leaves as you wash it, & I also like to add nutmeg - or caraway seeds are also a good partner. Nice finely shredded in coleslaw too?

sasvoy cabbage

And you could blanch the leaves, make a savoury filling of choice & roll a spoonful in a leaf before placing side by side in a covered dish with a sauce or some stock & baking?
