Savoy Cabbage


Recipes
Savoy Cabbage

Nutritional Table

Selection - Unlike other cabbages, savoy has a rough, bumpy texture, and the head isn't as firm. Choose a head that has a nice, healthy green color. Outer leaves should be free of blemishes.

Storage - Refrigerate and it will keep for months.

Preparation - Wash leaves and chop fine. Boil or steam.

Nutritional Information - Savoy cabbage is a great source of fiber, which reduces constipation. Contains a good amount of both vitamins A and C to improve the immune system. One 1/2 cup of shredded and boiled savoy has 18 calories.

Benefits - May help to prevent cancer. Contains Vitamin B6, which may help relieve some cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.
