DESCRIPTION: Cabbage is a common ball-shaped leafy vegetable. Wrapper leaves are the 2–3 loosely attached leaves on the outside of the cabbage head. These are generally not consumed and most or all of these leaves may have been removed by the time the head reaches the consumer. Most commonly, only the tightly packed leaves that form a ball are eaten. Generally, two leaves, one from each side, will form a layer completely covering the circumference of the cabbage head.
INFESTATION: Though red cabbage does not generally host bugs, there are infrequent periods of infestation. Therefore, the consumer should be alert for any indications of insect presence, such as holes in the leaf of the cabbage. As an additional safeguard, washing the leaves is recommended in the absence of inspection.
- Peel away loose outer leaves and discard.
- Core and split the cabbage in half, allowing the leaves to be pulled away more easily.
- Wash both sides of each leaf.
Shredded cabbage may be washed in a colander. No inspection is required.
