Description:This display of freshly delivered Napa cabbage, Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis, was found in a farmers market produce section alongside a wide variety of other vegetables and fruits. A type of Chinese cabbage, Napa cabbage, also known as celery cabbage, is a good low calorie source of vitamin C with a 3.5oz serving supplying 45% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA), and 38% of the RDA for vitamin K.
Wash your hands with soap and water before preparing food. Wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils (including knives), and counter tops with hot, soapy water after preparing each food item and before going on to the next food. Wash produce. Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables in running tap water to remove visible dirt and grime. Remove and discard the outermost leaves of a head of lettuce or cabbage. Because bacteria can grow well on the cut surface of fruit or vegetable, be careful not to contaminate these foods while slicing them up on the cutting board, and avoid leaving cut produce at room temperature for many hours. Don't be a source of foodborne illness yourself. Avoid preparing food for others if you yourself have a diarrheal illness.
