Chopping Cabbage

Now you've done it - bought a giant head of cabbage and have no clue how to handle it.  Or you're like me and got a boulder size head from you're CSA and have no idea how to cut it.

I did some research and turns out cabbage is pretty easy to deal with.

Here's what you do...

  • 1 Large Knife
  • 1 Medium Knife
  • 1 Large Cutting Board


1. Peel off any bad leaves

2. Using the large knife, cut cabbage in half, starting at the top and slicing through to the stem

3. Then, slice each half in half

 4. Using the medium knife, at a 45 degree angle, cut out the stem of each wedge

5.  Starting at either end of the wedge, thinly slice

That's it - you've got perfect cabbage for sauerkraut, stir-fry's, anything you can think of!

You don't even want to know how I used to hack up cabbage before learning the proper way...
