While you can get cabbage of some sort from all year round, when there's not much else around in February, cabbage can seem more exciting than the cabbage you can get at the height of summer when so much else is available. This is somewhat unfair in a way to cabbage. Savoy though, is ready when little else is; it's similarly hardy and safe against frosts as kale, and indeed tastes better after the first frosts like sprouts.
Savoys can be prepared in a number of ways; the texture of the wrinkly leaves works well for stuffing but if that's too much trouble, they are easy to cook. First, the stalk should be removed, followed by some chopping, and steaming for a few minutes, before tossing with butter and pepper and serving.
