    Hello Ladies, Does it matter what type of cabbage I use?, i.e. white, green, savoy etc? Kind regards, Michael

      Hi Michael,
      I really don’t think it matters which cabbage you use as long as you don’t overcook it. I find that regular cabbage does the trick, but if you want to try another kind it shouldn’t be a problem. Blessings, Fay
