If you subscribe to a community-supported agriculture group or frequent a farmer's market, you know that cabbage is everywhere in winter – and after a while, it can be tough to come up with unique ways to use it. The recipe that follows will add new life to your cabbage-cooking routine. This dish brings out the natural sweetness of cabbage (and adds a whole lot of flavor, thanks to the bacon!)
The secret to success with this recipe is to avoid cooking the cabbage for too long. You want to cook out any bitterness, but overcooked cabbage can smell like sulfur and become less than appealing. As soon as you've cooked out the rawness, this dish is done.
