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.
- 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.
