Red, green, and savoy cabbage

Cabbage red or green is not just good for jigg's dinner (also known as 'corned beef & cabbage' or simply 'boiled dinner'), it's great for sauerkraut, roasted vegetables, coleslaw, and stir fry. This yummy quinoa soup recipe uses cabbage and all kinds of other veggies.


Red cabbage-  A great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and anti-oxidants this cabbage can be shredded in a raw coleslaw, chopped for a soup, or shredded into sauerkraut or kimchi.

Poona Kheera also can be used in stir-fries and chutneys. It is an unusual cucumber it has a white to yellow skin that changes to brownish red as it matures. Eat it as you would any other cucumber.

Here is a recipe that we use: Aunt Anna’s Mustard Pickles 10 cups cucumbers peel, remove the seeds and chop into roughly 1/2 inch chunks (7-9 cucumbers) 1-quart onions diced (6-8 white onions) 1-quart celery and cauliflower diced (2 cups of each) 1 red pepper diced (2 if you want more colour) 4 tablespoons pickling salt Cover with 4 tablespoons pickling salt and water. Leave overnight. Drain well. Sauce 4 cups vinegar 6 cups sugar 4 tablespoons dry mustard 1 cup flour 1 tea
