January King cabbage is a cultivar with intermediate morphology between Savoy cabbage and white cabbage. It is known as chou de Milan de Pontoise in France. ‘January King’ cabbage is a winter vegetable which has been cultivated in England since 1867.
Cabbage is a versatile veg. Shredded and used in stir-fries, curries, soups and stews, it adds a healthy bulk of greens. Simply steamed or braised and buttered, it’s a good foil for meat dishes. Make it the star of the show in a gratin, or use larger cooked leaves as wrappers for rice, grains and veg, or for mince.
Delicate January King cabbage will take just 3-5 mins to steam, or simply cook for about 10 mins over a medium heat with a good dose of butter.
Keep in the fridge or a cool veg rack. It will last up to a fortnight
