Red Savoy Cabbage

Round with crinkled leaves, Savoys are the beauties of the cabbage world. Their leaves are more delicate and more loosely packed than their green cabbage cousins. These cabbages are great in soups and stir fries, and the leaves are are perfect for stuffing with rice.  Red Savoys may be used just like green savoys.  Only the outer leaves are red, the inner leaves are green.  Store as you would other cabbages, unwashed, loosely wrapped in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer. Don't worry if the outer leaves begin to discolor or tear on you, just remove them to expose the perfectly good leaves remaining below.
