Cabbage Patch

We’re launching this feature in the dreadful bleakness of winter, just to let you know that there’s still great local stuff to eat. While a scroll over Epicurious’s handy seasonal ingredient map claims that we’re still smack in the root veg/stored orchard fruits months, the New York State Agricultural Harvest Calendar opines that there’s also the wonderful world of cabbage to explore! To be honest, I love my cabbage, as well as all those beets/turnips/rutabegas and parsnips (blame my bog-trotting forebears), but this week, I’ll be consoling myself with some slurp-a-licious midwinter Bluepoints.
