Tips & Recipe Ideas

Purple Cabbage

Purple cabbage, also referred to as red cabbage, belongs to the Brassica genus of plants. This group includes nutrient-dense vegetables, such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and kale. Source: Healthline.com

This cabbage is often used raw for salads and coleslaw, but can easily be eaten cooked. (Sometimes cooking changes its color, making it appear blueish.) It is the traditional accompanying side dish paired with many German meals.

Mint

There are many varieties of mint—all fragrant, whether shiny or fuzzy, smooth or crinkled, bright green or variegated. However, you can always tell a member of the mint family by its square stem. Rolling it between your fingers, you’ll notice a pungent scent and think of candy, sweet teas, or maybe even mint juleps. As well as kitchen companions, mints are used as garden accents, ground covers, air fresheners, and herbal medicines.
