How To Store and Use Up Cabbage
Cabbage is super affordable, healthy, and can be very delicious! And it’s a generous one…You buy one cabbage and you’re basically covered for the next 3-4 days on vegetables. Although, throw in a carrot or a lemon in there too.
It is also a survivor, cabbage will stay good for many many days. I usually try to keep my cabbage in the fridge or in a cool room, since it stays good longer.
My biggest advice when it comes to using up cabbage is to wash, dry, chop, store in the fridge in an airtight container and use it in every meal. That’s basically it. Making some of these cabbage-based recipes will help a lot too!
