Freezing Cabbage?

My dad gave me a huge cabbage. I mean huge -11 lbs. Being only 2 people I will never use this up. I made a huge pan of Pigs in blanket, and the balance i fried up with some onion carrots garlic. Wonder if it freezes well after been cooked.

It doesn't freeze well, cooked or uncooked. It will turn to mush upon thawing. Sorry.

I freeze cabbage in the liquid I cooked it in (ie. soup), and it does just fine. In fact, I had some corned beef and cabbage out of the freezer last night.

Good idea Miss Connie...This time of year I don't throw anything away..The last spoonful of peas, corn, green beans, bits of meat etc. all go into a freezer box...Pretty soon you can add a couple of rusty nails, and a puppy dog tail and have a pretty good pot of soup!! --- Stir up some corn bread, and ya got supper on a cold and dreary night.

My mom makes stuffed cabbage at home and freezes it and my dad's frozen food company also makes stuffed cabbage. You will never get the crunchiness back if you freeze is but it is fine for saoft applications

thats how i got the huge cabbage in the first place. My dad make a barrel - yes a barrel of sauerkraut and had heads left over. What he makes is really good if you can get thru the awful smell of the brine. Everytime he goes down in the basement to get any of kraut the smell ewwww. Once you rinse it off it's great. I decided to try freezing some of the pigs and made up a couple of small containers of the fried cabbage and put in the freezer. Figured if it didn't work i can always throw in to a pot of soup. by the way I also received a red cabbage any Ideas other the coleslaw.
