How to store cabbage

The best way to store cabbage is in the refrigerator. Here are a few tips for storing cabbage:

  1. Keep it whole: Cabbage will stay fresh longer if it is not cut or shredded. When you are ready to use it, cut off the outer leaves and then cut or shred as needed.

  2. Wrap it up: Place the whole cabbage in a plastic bag or wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it from drying out.

  3. Keep it cool: Cabbage should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32-40°F (0-4°C)

  4. Use it within a week: Whole cabbage can last up to two weeks in the refrigerator, but it's best to use it within a week to ensure maximum freshness.

  5. Shredded cabbage can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days if kept in an airtight container.

  6. Fermented cabbage like sauerkraut and kimchi can be stored in the refrigerator for several months, but it's best to consume it within 6 months for the best taste and nutritional value.

It's important to note that cabbage can absorb odours from other foods in the refrigerator, so make sure to store it away from strong-smelling foods. Also, when storing fermented cabbage, make sure to use a clean, airtight container to prevent contamination.
