Live from NY, It's Conehead Cabbage!

We didn't mean to grow Conehead Cabbage at Heathen Hill Yoga. We don't even remember the name of the variety we planted. It's CABBAGE. Nature's broom. Shredded raw, you've got the beginning of coleslaw. Saute it with some sesame oil, throw in bananas and peanuts, and you've got a side dish you could serve as dessert. Go crazy.
