During the month of December, cabbage has had a chance not only to grow to its full size and density, but also to experience some cool weather, which helps it become sweeter and mellower in flavor. Regular green cabbage, red cabbage, and crinkly savoy cabbage varieties are all full of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system during short, cool winter days. Cabbage is also a good source of fiber, and is a versatile ingredient in many dishes, both raw and cooked.
