How to cook january king cabbage

Discard any damaged outer leaves and the central core. To make the prep easier, roll up two or three outer leaves into a sausage shape and slice them together. January King is a delicate variety so is better steamed than boiled. It also works well raw in a coleslaw – shred finely and mix with sliced carrot and a dressing of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and seasoning.
