TitlePhotographs - - 1960s - - Seminoles with swamp cabbage / photograph by Henry Moretti.
Date1960s
NotesSettlers learned how to prepare swamp cabbage from the Seminoles. The sabal palm tree was cut down and only the heart was used. The hard tough fronds were cut off to reach the white heart. The tender heart was cut into ½ inch cubes and cooked slowly in a pot of water for 20-30 minutes. Sugar and salt were added for taste. The mixture was simmered until tender. Swamp cabbage appears on grocery shelves as Hearts of Palm.
