Expert Tips

Jazz up this classic cabbage dish by adding 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of caraway seed, celery seed or fennel seed. For a spicy-sweet note, add 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, ground cloves and ground nutmeg.

Purchase preshredded cabbage in the produce section or deli at your supermarket. If you choose to shred your own cabbage, you can do so using a food processor up to one week before, and refrigerate it in a plastic bag.
