Cabbage and corned beef has been a traditional Irish dish going back to Medieval times and with its humble beginnings it is now known around the world and it has followed Irish Immigrants to each corner of the globe. It is always part of any St Patrick’s Day feast and you now can have a taste of the Emerald Isle in your own home thanks to Judy and her recipe. Cabbage is an old leafy treat that has been around for millennia and with the varied recipes it finds itself in we can expect to have it around for many more years and recipes to come.Cabbage is first believed to be domesticated around over 3,000 years ago by early Europeans and over time became very popular and by the early 16th century had become an integral part of many different recipes not only in Europe but across the pond in the New World with the early immigrants bringing it with them.
The hardheaded and most popular cabbage variety was mainly grown and produced in Northern Europe. The less popular, at the time, but now widely accepted softheaded, Savoy, was mostly found in Southern Europe. They were usually mostly boiled in the early days and used in many dishes as a mix with meats and potatoes as with this offering from Judy. Whether you include it in your slaw recipe or marry it with potatoes, meat and other veggies cabbage is always welcomed.
