I grew up detesting cabbage because my parents always boiled it. Back in the 1970's I had a large garden. I had planted broccoli in the early Spring and I was waiting for stalks of broccoli to emerge. My parents came to visit and I was showing my Dad my broccoli, he said "I don't see any broccoli but I see some very fine cabbages". My broccoli turned out to be cabbage. I found this recipe for sautéed cabbage, turns out I love cabbage.
