Winter frosts make for the sweetest Savoy cabbage and add taste to all of the health-promoting brassica family, which are high in vitamins B, C and E, folic acid and calcium. Savoy is tasty, tender and pleases the gourmet more than its common cousin; it also exudes less sulphuric odour when cooked. Shred it into soups, salads and sauté in organic butter with thyme. Enliven cabbage dishes with whole spice and herbs: add rosemary or sage, nutmeg, a cinnamon quill, Hungarian paprika or orange zest. Pickle it in salt and sugar brine with wine vinegar. Savoy cabbage matches perfectly with pork and smoked meats.
The best cabbages to pick when buying are the ones that have bright colour, that are firm to the touch with no sign of discolouration or rotting to the outside. When picking out green cabbages look for those that are shiny and bright with line green colour and when picking out red cabbages pick the ones that have deep maroonish-purple colour. Always discard the outer leaves before using cabbages.
When storing cabbages, it is advisable to keep the cabbage whole until it is time to use it, and if it is a must to store a cut half cabbage use a plastic bag and store it in the fridge for about two days.

We're doing our bit to help you stop using single use plastic bags. You can now get Onya reusable Produce Bags, an easy replacement for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags, made from recycled plastic drink bottles from the Market Information Stand.
These light (only 10 grams per bag) but deceptively strong mesh bags can hold up to 2 kilos of produce and feature a gussett and drawsting tie. Available in a 5 pack the produce bags stuff down into a brightly coloured pouch the size of your fist when not in use. The bags can be washed simply with a cool water handwash when the need arises, or they can be put on a cool gentle cycle in the washing machine. Available at the Information Stand: $14 for members and $16 for non-members.
Can you spare four hours on Sunday morning once a month? We’re looking for friendly folk who will help at our Information Stall at our Adelaide Showground Farmers' Market. Training will be provided. Contact email@example.com to register your interest.
