Cabbage: (n) a cultivated plant eaten as a vegetable,
Cabbage, while cooking, smells like farts.
Since this is true, one should not be surprised that consuming such a concoction should continue the fart-smelling process all the way through your body. Matter of fact, your house will smell like farts for days after cooking and digesting cabbage.
Another insight: cabbage is one of those vegetables that only tastes good if it’s cooked to a certain level of tenderness–or if the head has a slight sweetness to it.
How are you supposed to find that out?
I suppose you could break off a little piece in the grocery store and chew on the raw leaf. I’m not going to do that.
And so, because it is difficult to prepare, quickly becomes mushy, and the more it’s overcooked the more bitter it tastes, it’s just best to wait until some professional cooks it for you.
Otherwise, you will have fart smell in your house, fart smell in your body, and wonder if it was worth it in the first place.
