The deep, red colour and sharp, peppery flavour of red cabbage are both signs that it’s as nutritious as it is delicious. The red colour comes from flavonoid antioxidants, which may improve neurological function and promote cardiovascular health. The bitter taste comes from its sulfur content. Sulfur is one of the most abundant minerals in the body and is involved in hundreds of physiological processes.
It's so tasty many pests love it too! Because this is organic produce (so not sprayed with any pesticides non-organic farmers might use) it's not uncommon for the leaves to contain a few holes from critters who've helped themselves to a meal in the field. Regardless of the odd hole, your cabbage will always be super fresh, crisp, and delicious!
