See the difference between cabbages – green, Savoy, red, Napa, bok choy, brussels sprouts – and learn what to do with them.

No matter what type you buy, look for cabbage heads that feel heavy for their size and, except for Napa cabbage, have tightly packed leaves. While you don't want bruised or beaten up vegetables, you can peel off and discard the outer leaves, so they need not be pristine.
