I am making a salad today and was suppost to use Wombok...I have never cooked with it before...so was suprised when I started to chop it up and found all these brown/black spots all through the cabbage...
I have googled it up and cant find any info about it..so was wondering if anyone knows if this is the way the cabbage is normally?
The spots wouldnt wash off, so paranoia got the better of me and Im using normal cabbage instead!
Wombok is a chinese cabbage. I have't really cooked with it before but it is retivelty new, Just thoughly wash the cabbage before use if you are paroniod about the spots in the cabbage you can use normal cabbage
He he yeah Kate I never used to eat cabbage, but in some of the recipes i've been having lately it is beautiful! I never used to eat mushrooms either but lately have been trying different foods again, and am being pleasantly suprised how awesome they are...in recipes that is, not by themselves! And definately wont be buying wombok again, it freaked me out!
Also my bf bought it for me, and the next day I looked at the reciept and it was over 5 dollars! So definately normal cabbage for me!
It is even better the next day. My in laws are Polish so they got me on to it - now I am hooked. MIL cooks the cabbage then drains it and cooks the bacon and butter in the same pot and once it is nicely sauted she readds the cabbage and cooks it until the butter nearly burns - IT IS SOOOOOOOOOOOO YUMMMMMMMMY!
