Heads of cabbage exposed to extremely cold temperatures - minus 10 degrees Centigrade or so - taste the best. The cold turns starch into sugar, making the vegetable sweeter than usual.

      I'm amazed at the many benefits one can get from the lowly cabbage. I'm sold to numbers 5, 8, and 10. As a diabetic, I'm in constant watch in strengthening my immune system, improving blood circulation, and decreasing cholesterol levels. Very informative!
