Cabbage for lunch

This morning, it was time to clean the filter in the vacuum cleaner. A job I dislike because of all the water it consumes. However, three buckets full of it no doubt did the veggies some good.

Whilst carrying out these tasks, I pondered what to have for lunch and decided upon the biggest of the red cabbages. I love raw red cabbage and these, according to the packet, are best eaten raw.

I steamed some of the leaves for comparison and, yes, they have a much sweeter and deeper taste raw. Shame in a way, though, as this means they will be difficult to keep and there is only so much cabbage I can eat in one go.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
