Savoy Cabbage

Savoy Cabbage

Description

Somewhat conical shaped and heavy in relationship to size, with deep blue-green, wrinkled, crisp outer leaves and a pale green center.

Savoy cabbage is the most tender and sweet of the cabbage varieties with a deliciously distinctive flavor; in addition it lacks the sulphur-like odor that is associated with so many cabbage varieties when they are being cooked (although this can be avoided by not overcooking the cabbage).
