Hearts of Palm

Did you know that hearts of palm is also called "swamp cabbage?"  I learned that today while reading Ask Marilyn in Parade Magazine.

I knew that my beloved salad ingredient is a "long, slender vegetable that is actually the innermost portion -- the heart -- of the stem of the palmetto tree, the state tree of Florida."

But "swamp cabbage"?  That doesn't sound appealing at all.  It has no resemblance to cabbage!
