Safe handling and storage

  • Discard any outside leaves with damage or dirt on them
  • Cabbage must be stored in the refrigerator at 41⁰ or lower to stay fresh for several weeks.
  • To serve cut out the center stem portion, then rinse thoroughly and drain completely.
  • Never put cabbage near raw meat, this could cause cross contamination, resulting in unusable cabbage.
  • To maintain quality and nutritive value, preserve only what you can consume in 12 months. Source:Huyck, L. (2012, April 1). Using, Storing and Preserving Cabbage. . Retrieved June 27, 2014, from http://msue.anr.msu.edu/uploads/files/HNI09-Cabbage.pdf
