Savoy Cabbage is descended from the wild cabbage and is closely related to broccoli and cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and savoy cabbage. Cabbage is prepared and consumed in many ways. The simplest options include eating the vegetable raw or steaming it, though many cuisines pickle, stew, sautee or braise cabbage. Pickling is one of the most popular ways of preserving cabbage, creating dishes such as sauerkraut. Keep your cabbage whole until you plan to use it. When you cut cabbage in half, it begins to lose its vitamin C.
