Cold weather calls for sweater, fire, and cozy tradition, like staying in bed all day, or at least until someone needs a meal or begs to be walked. Then you can rouse yourself, pull on your gear, and stomp out into the chill, grateful to know that it's really not so bad to be alert, in daylight, in layers.
Just ask cabbage. The burly ball is all about layers, and cold weather, and cozy habits, like lazing around in a warm oven so long that its crisp, fresh bite mellows to tender sweetness.
At that point it's no longer called cabbage but kapusta, which, in Polish, means cabbage.
Kapusta is delightful heaped alongside sausage or stirred into noodles and savored on an icy day, possibly from bed. After all, it's cold out there. You deserve comfort.
