This week our CSA members will receive Caraflex cabbage in their shares. Also known as “conehead” or “arrowhead” cabbage because of its shape, Caraflex has thin, sweet leaves, making it ideal for eating raw (like in coleslaw or for wraps). Caraflex also works well in quick-cooking dishes like stir-fry.
Store Caraflex the same way you would other cabbage: whole and wrapped loosely inside a plastic bag in your fridge’s crisper drawer. Because it’s more tender, we recommend using it within a week (compared to 2-4 weeks for a hardier cabbage), but we think you’ll have no trouble doing this once you give it a taste.
