I had a half a head of cabbage in my fridge that needed to be used up, but we don't eat a lot of cabbage. I decided to freeze it and bag it in snack sized bags so that I can pull a small amount out to add to a soup when needed. I think it's the perfect way to not waste the cabbage, thus not wasting money, and a great healthy addition to soup!
I filled a pot with water and allowed it to come to a boil. I then added the shredded up cabbage and let it blanch for 2 minutes (cook at a boil). After the two minutes were up I took the pan off the burner, drained the cabbage and cooled it all off with a cold water bath. Let it set a few minutes longer to make sure it was cooled down. Then I put it in snack sized bags labeled cabbage and today's date. Stick in the freezer and when I make my family a pot of soup, I can add some cabbage to it!
