Beets can be boiled, whole and unpeeled in water until soft. The red color will stain fingers, so either wear gloves, or use a fork and knife to slip off the peel once cooked. Greens can be eaten raw or cooked. Click here for more information on beets.
The different varieties of cabbage- green, Napa, Savoy, purple, have different shapes, colors or leaf appearances, and slightly different flavors. Purple and green have a stronger flavor, Napa and Savoy are milder. They can all be used in the same way. Click here for more information on green cabbage.
