Lateral Or Secondary Cabbage Heads

If you cut your cabbage carefully just beneath the solid head instead of pulling it up many times they will produce secondary heads or lateral heads. Although much smaller, just 3 or 4 inches across,  these have a wonderful taste and are a favorite with my family. They can be cut once firm and cooked whole or thrown on the grill wrapped in aluminum foil with a little butter . Give it a try!

  1. What a great tip!!! Thanks so much for sharing!


  2. I have a cousin & his wife that live within reaching distance of the commercial cabbage. They wait for the next head which they say is much more tender & delicious. They make slaw and boiled cabbage from it, wonderful!


  3. That's great to know, CQ! :o)

  4. My grandpa does this, they are very very good!!
